7. Businesses can massively pollute our air but the common man can't?
If we treated business the same way we should have an absolute ban on any toxic or offensive emissions from any industry!

Instead there is a standard, a PPM value for regulated chemicals. I say such a standard should exist for smoking. I have been to many places where ventilation systems effectively reduce concentrations by several orders of magnitude. And segregated smoking/nonsmoking effectively does the same, to some extent. Let's get to science instead of emotions here. I don't smoke but also don't think this is the correct path.
