Let's invert that. Nobody would force smokers to go anywhere where
nonsmokers go. Wait, it didn't work. A single guy ruins it for a
whole room, and he's completely oblivious about it. He's the asshole.
The others are victims.

What about drink-and-drive? Surely, there should full freedom, and
let market forces pick the winner? What about nuclear weapons?
I'm personally can handle hot isotopes, and would like a 100 kW
Toshiba plant in the garden. Why can't I? Why do fucking neighbours
whine about it? I don't complan about Thompson's VX plant 
in the garage, either.
