It's not just indoor public places in Eau Claire where lighting up is prohibited. Now residents of a south side, owner-occupied housing complex will have to snuff out smoking in their homes, the most recent sign of public anti-smoking sentiment. |
Members of the Fairfax Parkside Homeowners Association on Wednesday voted to outlaw smoking inside residences that are part of the 34-unit development. The ban also prohibits smoking in shared spaces, such as porches and garages, but does allow it in yards and on patios.
However, I can also see the homeowners point. If i purchased this home and tobacco is a legal product, i should be able to smoke in my house.
I quit smoking a while ago, and personally i think tobacco should be outlawed. But until it is, this kind of stuff sounds unfair for people who are doing nothing illegal and are in their own homes.
