    Default it is allowed

    Is it okay to say "It is allowed to smoke here."
    or
    "It is not allowed to smoke here."

    I'm not a teacher ...

    Although I don't see any grammatical errors in either sentence - I would probably use this instead:

    "Smoking is permitted here."

    "Smoking is NOT permitted here."
    Or "Smoking is prohibited here."
