Public options for smokers are becoming few and far between in Kansas City, Mo.

Since 2008, smoking has been banned in bars and restaurants located in Kansas City. The state of Kansas went smoke-free in 2012.

University campus buildings have been smoke-free for years in Kansas City, but beginning Aug. 1, smoking outside on the campus of the University of Missouri-Kansas City will be prohibited.  

Also in place soon will be a moratorium on smoking inside or outside of publicly-owned housing developments in Kansas City.  

We want to know if you think there should be any public places left for smokers.
