      if by cooking them they are causing you physical harm.  Are peppers like poison ivy, oils are spread by burning it?  No one should have an absolute right to enter another person's space and harm them, even if they lack intent to harm.

      I am allergic to tobacco,  if someone is smoking it,  I breathe in particles, and will become ill, swollen nasal passages, horrible headache within minutes, prolonged exposure and I will get sick enough to need medicine.  I used to have to avoid all sorts of places, now that the laws have changed, making smoking illegal in many public places, I can go out like other people do and enjoy restaurants, parks, work space, etc.

      •  However as no house is completely airtight (1+ / 0-)

        some odor will escape and thus be detectable by those nearby especially if they are using something as sensitive as that device.

          and even mere politeness require line drawing.

          If the laws are proposed as backdoors to making something legal to be illegal,  then they should be struck down, or if you can convince the politicians, never passed in the first place.

          And nuisances, escaping smells, dust, water have long been regulated with a combination of  civil and criminal laws.  It is not a novel area of the law.
