    Are you of the mind that smokers should not be allowed to smoke inside their own homes or cars?
    If they have children who would be forcibly exposed to that smoke, yes...

    What is next? Police being able to burst into your home cause you are stuffing your face with unhealthy foods, spraying yourself with crap that can cause cancer and stinks? Where does it end? Or are you fine with all of this?
    If you eat junk food in large amounts, while that is a poor choice, it is your choice. It doesn't affect others. When you smoke in a public space, you are affecting others with the poisonous emissions from the cancer sticks that you are lighting up.

    If I am in a public area first, you are violating MY rights when you light up... it is people like you that are leading me to increasingly believe we should criminalize the stuff and let you addicts SUFFER!!!

    I don't give a **** about your non-existent rights in a public space when you are perfectly capable of relocating yourself if it bothers you. You are violating my rights by trying to tell me what I can and cannot do in my home, my car, and in public. If you came up to me and bitched about it I would smile and blow smoke in your ****ing face.

    I favor the ban.
    Also much higher taxes on cigarettes to defray the expense of the clean-up....
    As far as I am concerned, they can smoke in air-tight canisters and breath their own crap.
    WOW so thats why I don't give damn about others. It's my smoking. By the way don't sterotype a group that use a legal substance just becuase you don't like it.

    ANd I would file charges for assault... and in many jurisdictions, a case could be made on that basis...

    And those rights I point to are NOT non-existant... as can be seen by an increasingly growing consensus that non-smokers DO have rights... And if you have children in your home, you darn well better believe that smoking in their presense IS child abuse... and you do NOT have an inalienable right to smoke in public in the presense of others... and it is the attitude of people like yourself that make these laws ever more palatable for the majority of people who find your attitude and actions to be disgraceful...

    If you want to use it, fine. Just don't impose your cancer sticks and their emissions on others...

    Cars and factories spew out far more toxic crap into the air than smokers do. I don't hear you ranting against them wanting them illegal. Oh wait...cars are more useful huh? Who gives a crap? They're both legal and as such its bull crap to ban them in the open air.

    Oh boo hoo. Grow thicker skin. It was probably your crappy attitude towards smokers that got the smoke blown in your face. Not because they were inconsiderate.
