    No, no one has the right to tell people what they can or can't do in their own homes.

    What a person does in the privacy of their own home is no one's business. Period.

    Where do we draw the line as to how far the fucking government can go?

    condo and coop boards are private entities. if the majority of shareholders vote to make a building non-smoking, that's their business.

    There will never be a day where I let a condo cabal or a neighborhood nazi association tell me what to do on my own property.

    If i want to hang naked from my chandelier while smoking and eating trans fats and drinking Four Loko that's my business and no one else's

    i agree with you skull but some people love these restrictions....there already exists rules that control what you do inside the walls of your apartment or condo etc...i.e. quiet hours...

    the non smoking ban will be based on some bottom line factors...lawsuits over 2nd hand smoke and how they are being handled....

    like rats in a cage they are

    Good idea for future purchasers of properties in those communities.

    But not a fair to impose that ban on people who already own their properties, I think.
