What about them? For one thing, cars don't stink to high hell, they don't cause cancer etc., unless you are driving an old piece of garbage.

Secondly, very few people drive their cars into buildings, much less into somebody's office.

Does smelling a smokers breath or body odor cause cancer?

That, too me, is a bigger annoyance.
Ding ding ding!!!

Our first Einstein who believes the sight of a gut is as harmful as carcinogens.

hey STINK, is the problem. How hard can that be to understand?

Exactly, and if one of them obese slobs showed up and were covered in sweat and smelled terribly they'd be sent home in most places of employment.

Will it be someone's job to sniff employees?

Well, some employers will not employ smokers and subject employees to testing.

Municipalities are increasingly banning smoking in all public spaces, streets, parks, beaches.

Several states are contemplating laws banning smoking inside of rented or owned attached housing.

Smoking is increasingly unaffordable due to taxes.

On the other hand, it's unfortunate that state/municipal laws have trumped restaurant/bar owners' rights to decide for themselves if they want to be a smoking or non-smoking establishment.

I wonder how medical or otherwise legal recreational pot smoking will be handled, going forward.

The smell of smoke has never bothered me. I have no horse in this race.

Actually, tobacco effluent DOES cause cancer, both among those addicted to it, and thos involuntarioly exposed to it. It also cause a lot of other helath/comfort issues. Do you LIKE inflicting msery on your fellow citizens?
