I am a smoker and am still considering The Mariner for Alaska next year.
People have the right to breathe fresh air, just as I have the right to puff away in my home.
I argue with my own family about our' "rights."
If it was not so unhealthy, people would deal with smoke the same as perfume and BO. (Do people stop and sniff after there's a fire someplace, or get away from it as fast as they can? It's just not a nice smell anyways.)
If we (as a whole) had been more considerate in the past, perhaps these businesses would not have had to resort to these measures?
It's always fun to clean the walls in our house that are yellow from the Nicotine buildup. Perhaps this is another factor in their decision? The stuff just stays, and gets into fabrics big-time.
