Does a Ban on Smoking in Home Go Too Far?

A Wisconsin housing complex has managed to snuff out smokers, thanks to a 15-4 vote among owners to ban residents from smoking in the homes they own. The president of the homeowners association explains that this "doesn't restrict a smoker from living here. It just means that there are restrictions on where they can smoke."

The housing development in question is made up of duplexes, so the health-conscious homeowners worry that smoke could spread to a connected home.

Do you think it's fair for neighborhood associations to ban smoking with a vote, or does prohibiting someone from lighting up in a private residence sound like the tyranny of nonsmokers?
