    Default Should smoking be banned on balconies?

    Apparently there was a segment on TV this morning about banning smoking on balconies in residential units etc ( owners and tenants) and my property manager has now had about 6 complaints from different tenants wanting a smoking ban in their unit complexes - what do you think and would you vote yes or no if you owned a unit? ( the body corporate can ban it if majority owners agree )

    I would agree with the ban. Even if a smoker is outside on their own balcony the wind can drift that smoke off towards another persons balcony where it enters via a door .
    A non smoker next door shouldn't have to put up with that.

    No I think that's ridiculous. Sorry but I do. Smoking is already banned everywhere public just about but private balconies is nuts. Are these tenants supposed to walk downstairs to the car park to smoke? Is it the risk of smoke blowing in someone else's window or butts landing on the ground? It just seems a little bit extreme to me.

    I'm a non-smoker and generally supportive of smoking bans but I think this is going a bit far.
