My dear husband is extremely allergic to tobacco smoke. Anytime he is in a situation where people have been smoking, cure he starts having a reaction, ask difficulty breathing, click eye irritation, etc. For the sake of the health of everyone, smoking should be prohibited in all public places, restaurants, hotels, etc. The research is clear even for non-smokers. Secondhand smoke is dangerous to the health of everyone. My father was a smoker when he was young. He gave it up due to emphysema, but it was too late. He suffered with asthma and emphysema the rest of his life. Please make a smoke-free workplace a reality in Texas. It is not an issue of personal freedoms but an issue of health.
