but that's not really the topic, just smoking a poor example.
And I could argue:
You have every right not to choose to be around anyone who is smoking. Your right is preserved. You are responsible for monitoring your surroundings in relation to managing your illness. The rest of society does not bear that responsibility.
But you are right. Smoking is a strawman thrown out in an attempt to distract from the actual debate.
