Objectively, the tobacco industry paid professional to bury the long term effects of smoking and 2nd hand smoke. It is only in recent times that the truth that smoking is carcinogenic is taken seriously.

Smoking would be banned today if it was not for the revenue that it still generates for Governments.

As an asthmatic growing up in a home of 2 smokers, I can tell you that the smoke triggered me many times. I had no rights. Propaganda back then convinced them it was not the smoke. It wasn't until the truth started coming out, they realized the impact that it was having on their children. They then moved to smoking outside, then stop smoking.

Whilst you are worried about your rights as a smoker, you're being ignorant of the impact on those around you. Why should we have no rights and be forced to inhale your by-product of smoking?
