I don't think there is a big enough or potent enough filter.
My late Uncle, a Marine smoked so much that everything in his home was
covered in a brown film nearly impossible to get off. I inherited
several of his guns. I spent many an evening with solvents and oils
getting all/most of it off.
Smoking in a car can take a thousand to several thousand off it's value.
You can hide the odor for a while but it comes back out and no one wants it.

The tax on my ciggies pays for healthcare for all the obesity-related

Prosecute all the lazy bastards who don't cook and who feed their kids
nothing but cola, pizza and fast food. With all of the obtuse and
irrelevant discussion of second-hand smoke...a problem vastly
exagerated...nobody brings up the millions of tons of pollution produced
by businesses. People get very in-your-face at the sight of a
cigarette, but jump into their gas guzzlers and drive home and light up
their fire places and run their dang noisy gas-powered leaf blowers and
pollute MY air. I'm not saying smoking is good, or that second-hand
smoke does not have risks, but folks these days sing a one-note song and
sing it forever. They drive gas guzzlers and dump poison by the ton into
the envirnment, but seem to think that air is pure but for cigarette
smoke. And never, ever, do I hear of a tax on alcoholic
beverages...would probably balance the federal budget but who wants to
pay a dime more for the booze they guzzle daily, or think about the
health and social hazards of doing so. I'm just sayin'...
Cig. smoking became popular partly as an answer to weight control. It
would be ironic, but not terribly surprising, if enough people quit
smoking only to discover that doing so, statistically, leads to reducing
life expectancy because of the increase in obesity-related illnesses?

Just FYI, there are plenty of taxes on alcoholic beverages. JACK
DANIELS for one pays a whopping $14 a GALLON on every gallon that goes
into the aging warehouses. NOT when it is sold, when it is MADE some 7
years before he gets to sell it.
