I too hate second hand smoke but the answer is not going to be found in legislation. What we are dealing with here is an addiction rather than mere personal choice. While I think smoking is a huge health risk, there is a clear danger in giving the government too much scope and power in our lives. Good health information and effective treatments will be much more productive. I have seen many alcoholics gain abstinence and recovery when they were lovingly confronted with the facts of their illness. We have already seen the effects of trying to legislate this problem away during prohibition.
