50. Its not fascist, its a great law, and I support it 100%.
Edited on Sun Mar-19-06 12:22 PM by rpgamerd00d
Air Freshener is not harmful, yet if I stood in public and sprayed people with it, I would get arrested for assault.

Why should cigarette smoke be any different? Its an annoying smelly cloud of smoke blown at people. You do not have the right to stink-ify people with your noxious vapors, period. And that isn't even getting into the proof or lack of proof about the harm of 2nd hand smoke.
