Smoke and Condominiums

March 23, 2012 - Sylvia Heldreth
Today, fewer than 20% of Americans smoke. The issue of secondhand smoke is being raised by non-smokers everywhere.

Some, especially smokers, say that a person's "home is his castle" and smoke is like cooking odors, something one has to accept when living in a community with others.

On the other hand, six California cities and counties have banned smoking in all condo units. A Florida court awarded $1000 to a nonsmoker after she successfully argued that her condominium neighbor's smoking was trespass, a nuisance, and violated her right to quiet enjoyment.

Should smoking be banned or limited to designated common areas in condominiums?

What do you think?
