I agree. Banning an activity is not discriminatory, but banning the person is. An employer (or landlord) can tell people not to smoke in certain areas, but what business is it of theirs what the person does elsewhere?
I smoked for years at work, and three years in a row I won a Perfect Attendance award. So much for the BS theory that smokers miss more time at work than non-smokers because of colds or flu. The years that I won the award I was practically the only employee in my office who didn't miss a single day at work because of illness. And I was a very heavy smoker. I smoked like a STEAM ENGINE yet I never got sick!
Anti-smokers are just a bunch of nazis. I really think that they are former smokers who are green with envy watching other people enjoy a smoke.
