The deal here is that AC doesn't believe that sidestream/secondhand smoke poses a health risk, thus banning of it is arbitrary and has nothing to do with public welfare or workplace health safety issues.
If, on the other hand, you believe that sidestream smoke actually poses a health risk, there are legitimate reasons for smoking bans.
Here is the legit debate. BUT as I pointed out, if OSHA doesn't have an issue then I can't see how anyone can justify a smoking ban on air quality standards. If you disagree with OSHA's permissible limits, that's fine but take that up with them.
