Smokers are now the minority in this country, and it is majority rule here.
Smoking is proven to be a health risk, and proven to shorten lives. Anyone who thinks otherwise is fooling themselves.
And how about the rights of non-smokers? Don't we have the right to eat a meal in a restaurant, without smelling cigarettes? Yuck! And smokers are really discourteous in restaurants, never giving a thought that their ill-smelling smoke interferes with non-smokers who are trying to enjoy a good meal.
Rights of smokers? Well, yeah, smoke outside, or in your own home, but you do not have the right to force me to smell your bad-smelling cigarettes.
