I hate public smoking of any type. If you aren't bothering anybody and you are "addicted" than by all means trash your lungs. I get tired of going shopping and walking into a cloud of nasty smelling smoke. It isn't right. I don't care if people smoke but you shouldn't hurt others. And don't get me started on those stupid laws they made. You know most bars still allow smoking and they just pay the fine when the cops catch them?
Anyways, My poor mother is a non smoker but she has a lung condition that means she can't be around smoke. I feel so bad when we take her to shopping centers and she walks into a cloud of cigarette nastyness and starts off on a coughing fit. All she wants is to go shopping and she kills herself coughing. She reacts the same way around pot smoke. It's a nasty habit that doesn't only affect the smoker. I personally don't see how anyone could allow themselves to get addicted to drinking and smoking and be okay with the habit. I used to drink but I couldn't stand being sick and haven't touched it in five years. I have never tryed a cigarette or pot and I don't intend to EVER.
