I will probably get some of you mad at me, this is a hot button issue for me, I am not a smoker, my hubby is. I get offended by the whole smoking/non smoking issue, last time I checked we was a free nation, to make all our own choices, good or bad ours to make.
I believe that if, the american public can have control over someones personal choice, just because it may cause health issues, or that they don't like cigarette smoke then we as Americans should, have the right say , some people wear to much cologne, eat to much food becoming over weight, someone who doesn't have great heigene, ETC.
It in my opinion it is a group of do gooders, thinking they have the right to take your rights away from you, because you no better than the smoker, what is right. which in fact isn't true. I am not crazy about cigarette smoke myself, but if I don't want to smell or breathe it in, I move away.
We are a free nation to a point, I believe we need to respect others personal choices, who knows maybe us non-smokers have vise's that offend smokers.
