Do we really mean to unleash the smell police?
    Does BO, and perfume cause cancer like second hand smoke can? I think not

    Well now, a small percentage of the population are allergic to those things, just as a small percentage of the population gets cancer from second hand cigarette smoke.

    And how about this, we ban driving of all but fully electric vehicles near public places. The exhaust is just as damaging to folks (actually more so) as the second hand cigarette smoke.

    Honestly, I would be willing to allow smokers to smoke in public...as long as it isn't a restaurant! That is really my only concern with smoking...other than that...I can walk by a smoker and deal with it as I would any other smell.

    I agree actually. Hated going to restaurants as a smoker myself when folks could light up. I've smoked outdoors for decades, even my own home.

    I am sure with enough study that will find yes by just breathing ordinbary air unfiltered air can lead to an increase of cancer. BO and Perfume especially if studied will find that people are allergic to perfumes and they may also lead to an increase in cancer from primary use and vacinity ingestion.

    Yes we should just all assume we know the outcomes of theoretical scientific studies. Much faster that way.

    Smoking is unhealthy, but there are limits to where I think the government can take legislating healthy behavior. Let people smoke. I'm all for public smoking bans, but if someone wants to smoke in their own home or car let them. They know the health risk, their insurance costs will be higher, and so long as they are willing to pay for their care when smoking makes them sick then why not?
