It certainly would be beneficial for everyone to live in a smoke free environment.

It would also be beneficial for everyone to live in a drug free and booze free environment. I'm pretty sure that drugs are already banned. Does anyone think that they're not being used in public housing?

It's wishful thinking to believe that you can just mandate booze, drugs and cigarettes out of public housing. I guess it does give the government one more tool to hassle the residents of public housing when they occasionally catch someone smoking.
