Let us not forget.... wait for it..... chewing gum!!
I guess the fact that there is no smell to offend, it's not as
noticeable. BUT..... I've seen tons of discarded, flattened, chewing
gum wads outside buildings.
One was so blatant and obvious, I wanted to get a photograph. The sun
hit a jillion flattened chewing gum "coins" and the entrance to this
one particular mall lit up like a diamond display. I jes happened to
see the same phenomena on some newscast video shots.
I bet there is tons! of discarded chewing gum, all over the world. No
outcry. No hissy fits. Why? No one can smell old chewing gum.
Wrong. Certain 'taste like sugar/sweet without actually being sugar'
chemicals have been determined to be carcinogenic and have since been
removed from the products and replaced with something else that'll
probably also be determined as 'bad for you' at a later date.
Do you drink soda, Jenn? Chew gum? You've probably injested these
wonderful second hand smoke free, cancer causing chemicals, and,
never realized it.
Oh what mess it is when you want to outlaw things that are 'bad for
you' Your hands free cell phone driving is bad for you and everyone
else you share the road with. We should have laws against it. Oh
wait, rofl, we already do. :-)

I'm sure that everyone else here knows that a "puff" means you have
the cigarette in your mouth and you are inhaling. Therefore the effects
of a "puff" are going to be very different than a whiff from 10 ft
away. It's like saying a whiff from a bus passing by is the same
as sucking on the exhaust, so the effects are the same.
Your inability to distinguish between a puff and a whiff from 10 ft
away shows that you're one of them.

But that isn't good enough for the zealots. They demand that everyone
be tolerant to others based on every kooky conceivable situation, but
they are the least tolerant of all.
South Park has a good episode on tolerance. Parents force the kids to go
to a tolerance museum, where they are shown the evils of intolerance,
eg using racial slurs, stereotypes of Mexicans as lazy, Asian as smart,
etc. Then when the parents and tolerance museum people walk outside
there is a guy 30 ft away who's smoking a cigarette. They all immediately
viciously attack him for smoking.
IIRC, that episode was called "The Death Camp of Tolerance", and
involved a teacher who wanted to be fired for being gay. I first guessed
the title was "Lemmiwinks", after the gerbil he put up someone's ass.

High fructose corn syrup? ;-)
The same doctors who bitch about tobacco have no problem prescribing
speed and opium to kids. No matter what the perceived problem is, they
have a cocktail of pills for it.
As an ex-smoker of tobacco, I agree.
I don't know why ex-smokers are so offended, but I now absolutely hate
the stink of cigarette smoking. Unbelievably horrible smelling habit!
Can't believe I did it as long as I did. 8|
Like most ex smokers, you are actually afraid that if you smell the
smoke, you will want one. Once a junkie always a junkie. Why should
your will power issues guide other peoples lives?
There are plenty of reasons not to smoke but I look at it like not
wearing a helmet on a bike. Everyone tries to make the case that they
are harmed when the rider doesn't have a helmet on but the reality is
it will only be a rider who is harmed.
Just like the smokers who die, it is usually going to be cheaper for
society than living to a ripe old age and dying from "natural causes"
That usually means years in intensive care sopping up social security
and medicare bucks, generally ending up in bankruptcy on medicaid when
they go to nursing home care.
I know why. It's because their sense of smell returned. Many years ago I
quit smoking for about a month.
After two weeks, I was constantly assailed by noxious odors...car exhaust,
cooking odors in restaurants, body odors in theaters (and everywhere else),
public restrooms, perfumes with which people tried to nask their body odor.
