Should you be able to smoke in your own home?

From foxnews.com:

Quote:
Increasingly in the U.S., disputes between neighbors are becoming matters of smokers versus non-smokers.

One recent example: Smoking was banned in a Minnesota condo building last year -- until smokers took control of the board earlier this year and voted to overturn the ban.

The issue has pitted neighbor against neighbor in the Gallery Tower, a 40-year-old condo in St. Paul, the Star Tribune of Minneapolis reported.

“We’re divided into parties now, and it’s so emotional,” said Bianca Fazio, a nonsmoker who has lived in the building since 2000, told the newspaper.

“At the crux of this is basically a homeowners’ rights issue,” countered smoker Marge Romero, who’s lived at Gallery Tower for 19 years.

“You ought to be able to live your life in the confines of your own home,” said Romero, who was elected to the building's board in January.

Nonsmokers say secondhand smoke is destroying their quality of life, while smokers see their home as the “last place they’re allowed to puff,” the report said.

Last summer, the Gallery Tower board voted for a smoking ban to take effect in April of this year. But those opposing the ban were elected in January and voted to rescind it in February.

“It’s stunning to me that there’s a public vote to go smoking, in this day and age,” condo resident Jeff Tentinger told the Star Tribune.

What do you think?

If I were on the Board, I would vote to allow smoking within the units. It’s not like cigarettes are illegal. Then again, I’m completely in favor of allowing all private individuals and businesses the ability whether to allow smoking on their premises or not.

For a condominium or home-owners association, it should simply be established up front, ideally before the first resident makes purchase of one of the units. Then everybody knows who is buying a home what the rules of the association are. These rules, and others like them, should be clearly defined at that point to no longer be up for debate or democratic process.

They become the homeowner’s rights. Otherwise, beware of purchasing a home where the property rights are subject to the whims of the majority.

You are awfully concerned about who gets to live.  Why is it so important to you?

mr crepe smokes a cigar after lunch and one after dinner when we're at home.  He smokes them on our screened in back porch.  We live in a subdivision that I guess believes in each family having the right to make any decisions needed on his own property.  Never has been a complaint from anyone, nor should there be.  My choice is not to even sit outside with him.  It's too dang hot, and I don't like the smell of the cigar smoke.

I hope you haven't sold the rights for this story yet...

That you must be immune to boredom because you should have died of it a long time ago.

And yet you keep responding to me.

BTW, do you believe that people shoule have the right to smoke a legal product in their own home?  That is what the thread is supposed to be about.

Silly question for you or anyone else who might know: Are cigars more or less hazardous to your health than cigarettes - or are they exactly the same?

The delusion is to think that when you live in a condo you are in your own home, you're not.
