Rental properties are not "owned" nor "insured" by the occupants. Where else is it illegal to smoke in the home you own - not rent?
All of the adult males on my dad's side of the family (and a few females too) were smokers when I was a kid and it dang near killed me more than once. I had bronchitis when I was little and not one of those adults was willing to make an effort to quit. Every house I lived in or relative I visited had a home that was thick with smoke. There wasn't a room I could escape to that I wasn't coughing and/or choking. Winter was the worst. I always caught a cold AND the flu every winter and it always turned serious for me. If I wanted to breath at all I had to flee to the outdoors no matter how sick I was and then returning inside in the evening with the dry heat and smoke that built up after work was torturous on my little body. My eyes, throat and lungs felt like they were on fire.

Once I turned 18 and escaped that environment my immune system was able to fight off the flus and colds better. Now, that I have a choice about the condition of my home environment, I don't catch them at all.

You people might want to try considering the health of your little ones over your own selfish desires...just for awhile...and maybe, just maybe your kids won't resent you when they grow up. Maybe they won't put you in a nursing home when you get old. Maybe they won't blow off your funeral when they remember how uncaring you were about their well being. Maybe.

No one gets arrested for smoking cigarettes. But try and light up in a nonsmoking zone - which is almost everywhere - and see what happens.
People do get fired for smoking in their own car on their own time. Some companies now won't even hire people who admit to smoking. And smokers are labeled social misfits thanks to the politically correct hysteria.
Just doesn't seem fair. Or right. Especially in light of all the other crap that's going on that's deemed acceptable or at least tolerated.
Designated smoking areas should be everywhere for people who happen to like smoking. It's their right to do so.
Job applications will soon say:
1. Do you have a criminal record?
2. Have you ever used illegal drugs?
3. Have you ever used tobacco?

Few dispute that smoking tobacco is bad for your health. The issue is personal freedom.
How about the personal freedom of children not to breath their parents' smoke? How many parents do you think take it outside when they light up? Not many, I'm sure. And not unless someone makes them.

Does the government, at any level, demand that signs be posted inside rental properties ordering inhabitants to not consume alcohol to inebriation? Signs ordering residents to not use recreational drugs? Marijuana? Hookahs? Rough Sex? Cook your hamburger thoroughly?

I have treated many a small child in respiratory distress; parents reek of cigarette smoke. "But, we smoke outside." It makes no difference how many times we attempt to educate that this has no bearing.

My kids destroyed every pack of my cigarettes they found. I got the message and quit. I live to see their children cause them the same degree of joy (and grief) they caused me!

Many parents engage in behavior far worse for their children than smoking. Do you want the government to regulate every aspect of your life?

(Note that Galt detests smoking, but detests government interference even more.)

The government demand to destroy the American hamburger by overcooking is particularly offensive.
