But in this particular case, there are non-smokers that are literally going out of their way to expose themselves to something that they say they feel is dangerous to their health.
It's completely different than a drunk driver putting others at risk without their knowledge or consent.
(ie: Kerry mentioned earlier in this thread how he felt he was being exposed to smoke in his car against his will, on the road, in a completely public setting. That to me (even as a smoker), is a much
more legitimate argument than non-smokers purposely going somewhere that they obviously feel their health will be put in jeopardy, and then complaining about it.)
