Why ban smoking in multi - family housing units?

Numerous studies have found that nonsmokers living in multiple family buildings can be exposed to secondhand smoke from neighbors who smoke. Eliminating smoking in indoor spaces is the only way to fully protect nonsmokers from secondhand smoke exposure. Cleaning the air, ventilating buildings, and separating smokers from nonsmokers cannot fully prevent secondhand smoke exposure.
