Absolutely NOT !!!

A Laser does not really diminish with distance like a flashlight !

You may think 0.2 watts is safe BUT the green laser is notorious for deliveering over the stated power rating because it is a powerful IR laser passed through two crystals to raise and ultimately lower the the Fq to 532nm. The power adjust pot could be jostled in process to over a watt !
