Good for you for recognizing that this goes far far beyond the issue of tobacco.
Everyone acts as though the smoke from tobacco is the CAUSE of disease. This is the impression that public health has put out there and scared everyone to death with. The fact is that, at the very worst, smoke is only correlated with an increased RISK of disease. There is a very very big difference.
Smokers are not MURDERING their children. That is extremism to the point of mental illness

I'm a non-smoker, but it seems ridiculous to outlaw smoking in bars. Alcohol isn't any healthier, and people go to bars to do things such as smoking and drinking. What next? Smoke-free casinos?
Temporary injunction bars man from lighting up inside his Washington home after neighbors sue
WASHINGTON – A temporary order by a Superior Court judge is keeping a man from smoking inside his home in the District of Columbia.
WJLA-TV (http://(link tracking not allowed)/1BrlPLl ) reports that Edwin Gray's next door neighbors in northeast Washington have filed a civil suit claiming they're being harmed by smoke that sneaks into their home through a hole in the basement. They are seeking an injunction and $500,000 in damages.

This isn't a rental unit it's a home he has owned for 50 years!!
In court filings and a statement, the neighbors say they tried to work with Johnson and Gray, and filed suit when mediation attempts failed.
