It seems odd that society allows tobacco products to be sold but then goes to great lengths to ban them from actually being used (at least in public). I don't smoke but I know many smokers. I've observed there is something very social about a smoking environment. Still no one can deny it is very unhealthy whether you are smoker or not. I'm sure there are some who love smoking without reservation and will enjoy doing so right down to the last gasp of their one and a half lungs. Personally I'm yet to meet one smoker who hasn't at some point mentioned they wanted to quit or at least try to do so. It's not only about choice but doing so while ensuring others aren't impinged upon. So like some have already mentioned, it is best to have separate rooms with excellent ventillation systems for those who like inhaling their own bad air along with that of their fellow smokers around them.

    Well, I feel everyone has a freedom of choice.........you don't have to go to the casino...............it's your choice to go............don't go if you don't like the smoke.....

    So all you people who complain about smoking, you are getting hit in the pocketbook.......big time......and it will be more in the future.........don't say you weren't warned.




    Yes, I agree it is a matter of freedom of choice. I also agree we non-smokers get hit in the pocket book hard; especially when smokers go to the hospitals to have lungs and tumors removed and don't have the money for it (who has money for surgery once all that money went to the tobacco companies?). That's right, those costs get passed on in higher insurance premiums and other health costs to EVERYONE not just smokers. But you can always tie up the court rooms in litigation and sue cigarette manufacturers for billions because, hey, despite decades of warning labels, advice from doctors and seeing millions of smokers die an early death, you just know it's not your fault you smoke!!! With choice comes responsibility for your own actions.
