Same here. I'm every bit as allergic to perfume as I am to tobacco smoke.
I'm from Illinois, and despite being a non-smoker and allergic to the stuff to boot, I do think this state has gone too far this time, plus they want
the revenue from taxes on smokes.
Consider this, though:
I know people who complain about the price of gas...then spend just as much on cigarettes, and will go as far as to not drive and/or eat(!) so they
The U.N. has decided that corn ethanol is a crime against humanity, but how much arable land is used to grow tobacco?
I know people who bitch about illegal immigrants "bankrupting" hospitals, but seem to think it's a conspiracy to suggest that smokers raise
insurance rates and hospital bills. For full disclosure, fat, lazy people do too, and I'm admittedly fat.
People post the most ludicrous conspiracy theories all over the internet (on this site as well) yet some of those same people, even when presented
with PROOF that tobacco companies add things to cigarettes to keep them addicted, don't care.
Having said all that, if you keep it out of my face and take responsibility for your own actions, more power to you. Start blowing it in my face,
though, and I swear I'll head to Kentucky with a flamethrower.
