Smoking is unhealthy for others around you.

And so is driving.  Driving is unhealthy for the environment -- it unleashes pollution in the air and is bad for us in the long run.

So why don't we restrict driving? 

Because it is politically unpopular.

The issue isn't the fact that people regulate smoking, the wheres, the whens, the whys.  The fact is that we regulate those things that are politically feasible for us to do so, not the things that are the most unhealthy.

I don't have a problem with the fact that we regulate smoking.  I have a problem with the fact that we choose what to regulate based on political popularity and not what is actually bad for us.
