57. Smoking in ones home doesn't create a nuisance.
First off, if smoke can get to another apartment from the inside, you have a building code violation. Otherwise, you can smoke in your own home and it won't intrude into the homes of your neighbors. What business does the government have now banning a legal activity?

As for blaring music or banging on a drum set, I can already do that without repercussions. I own a house in a rural area. I chose to buy a single family house because I didn't want to hear my neighbors, but I knew about that from the very beginning. I spent years living in apartments. You cannot invoke this law on people who bought a condo and happen to smoke well after they bought it. It was never a condition of owning a condo. If you feel so strongly about another condo owner's smoking, offer a fair price for their condo and buy it from them.

I sometimes can smell the smoke of a barbeque, fireplace, or backyard fire, but those are not considered nuisances, and I'm always free to shut the windows if the wind is blowing it my way.
