I’ll copy Chico Garcia’s (of Chico and Delamar) words,
”I understand the right of people to smoke if they choose, but once the smoke pollutes the air of other people, that’s when I have a problem with it. The risks you take as a smoker is your business, I respect that. But the moment I’m inhaling your second-hand smoke, then it becomes my business. If you smoke inside your house, I’m cool with that. But if I’m eating in a restaurant and your smoke wafts into my breathing space, then it’s not cool. My right to breathe clean air overrides your right to smoke cigarettes. As long as I don’t have to breathe your smoke, you can do whatever you want with your lungs…. It’s their choice to smoke, but it’s also my choice to breathe clean air. It’s a fair exchange.”
