smoking cigarettes, cigars, and pipes is still legal, basically. this banning smoking on cruises, bars, etc is denying smokers a basic right....the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. yes, i am a smoker and am tired of being discriminated against! smokers and drinkers in most cities pay extra taxes on their products to pay for the arts, athletics, etc but we aren't allowed to smoke anywhere in public any longer. our money is good enough to build things but then you take away our right to do what's paying for everyone's fun. you don't want smoking on a cruise, then the cruise lines should do one non-smoking cruise and one smoking cruise. that way no one is interferring with anyone else's rights.
