HOA Smoking Ban

This article (HOA Rule Forbids Couple To Smoke In Their Own Home) produced an unexpected survey result. Only 36% of people agree with me that it is legitimate for a homeowners association to have a rule regarding smoking.

I always wondered about the argument: "where am I supposed to smoke - out in the cold?" I guess there is something about the sanctity of the home that people always seem to want protected. As a Libertarian, I usually agree. But you have to draw a line any time you are doing harm to others.

I'm sure the next logical step will be for the smokers to sue the HOA for expenses of treating their frostbite -- right after the money runs out that they got from the tobacco companies for making them smoke in the first place.

I've already stated my position on the banning of smoking in your own home.

HOA's get out of control sometimes.
