I was speaking generally. Having designated areas does help, but there
are still plenty of cases where freedom to smoke has an impact on
others. For example, say I was waiting in line for tickets or to get
into a museum or a non-smoking facility. People in line are free to
smoke but will likely affect, to various degrees, those around them.
