¿"PROHIBIR" EN INGLÉS?
The reason that I am highlighting this verb is that when I used the English translation most of my students say: "What?". It is possible to use the Spanglish version here and say: "to prohibit" but it is not commonly used and, in fact, I very rarely use it.
The better option, in my opinion, is the verb "to ban". For example: "Smoking has been banned in all pubs and restaurants."
Hope that helps!
