Possibly both, depending on how folks interpret it.
Naw. Humidor under the dinette seat keeps my cigars in perfect puffing condition.

Smoking a good cigar, which I do when camping, is not more offensive and unhealthy than the smoky campfire the idiot across the street started hours ago and keeps pouring lighter fluid on to keep it smoking. If I were there first ,I would say "[moderator edit] you Jack.

Let me get this straight: Because other people can behave badly, you get a pass?

If you're bothering your neighbors, it doesn't matter how, you're doing it wrong...

I like a cigar too, but I also have an expectation to clean air when I pay to camp somewhere...

Wow, some have attitude. If one is renting a campsite does one relinquish his legal rights to do as he pleases within the realm of the law because his neighbour is unhappy with the choices made. I think its time for some to check the mirrors to see if there is a dolt with an attitude looking back at one. If laws are not being broken what does your medicinal beliefs have to do with what others want to do.

BTW Washington and Colorado camping may be out for me as I am very very allergic to cannabis and the THC within. It makes me violently ill to smell the stuff so to me there is no obvious medicinal value to the crap.

clyon51 they must of gotten it from every smoker they were next too. have to blame someone.
next time i go camping i think i should go next store everytime someone does something. i think your up to early -- go back to bed.
your cooking every meal to early - we eat later.
fires only during the daytime when i'm gone. have it put out 1 hour before i get back. i go to bed at 8pm so lights out and i don't want to hear a peep out of anyone. tie up kids and pets on other side of your camper. i don't want to see or hear them. if your wife is uggly put her over there also. if she's hot and can keep here mouth shut put here where i can keep a eye on her.

I'll quench two stogies for every blankety-blank generator that someone shuts down.

Sound fair?

P.S.

And if you shut that goldarn "whumping" fridge down to boot, I'll also quench a stogie that actually belongs to me!

Well, as my old Dad used to say,,,, Do your own thing as long as it does not bother other people. I try to live by that but I have to say that back when I was a smoker, I did not think it bothered others. Now that I am a Non, I have come to realize that it really does stink and it does bother others. Now I just leave and head to another space. It's a fight but not my fight... I would just close my windows and let it be.

I know, I know it's not considered to be in good taste to inject facts into one of these discussions.

CDC.....

Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of disease, disability, and death in the United States. Each year, an estimated 443,000 people die prematurely from smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke, and another 8.6 million live with a serious illness caused by smoking. Despite these risks, approximately 46.6 million U.S. adults smoke cigarettes. Smokeless tobacco, cigars, and pipes also have deadly consequences, including lung, larynx, esophageal, and oral cancers.

Ya and guns kill people too but that doesn't stop people from buying and using them...
Cars kill people and we still buy and drive them...
Suck in the air off the exhaust pipe and your doomed...
Drink enough Coke and it will kill ya...
French Fries will stop your heart eventually,,,
To each his/her own. Just do your best to not bother others while your doin it, Right?

I guess some believe if you enjoy an occasional cigar or smoke like a chimney you must also live in a hermit hole or on the moon with no outside contact whatsoever - never heard about the effects of tobacco - are not smart enough to make your own decisions and are in need of their tutelage and adult supervision. Free country but the facts are well known by anyone with half a wit. I personally am convinced if smoking would kill us in half the time it usually takes - it would be illegal. I get it and I think we all do. But throwing the facts around as if we didn't know is almost insulting. Bottom line - it's legal and as long as it is - it's one of the rights we defend. Right, wrong or indifferent. I also agree that we have an obesity problem and way too much diabetes and related health issues - but no 20 oz Cokes is going to far in book. The more rights we take away - the fewer rights there are to fight for. To all my brothers and sisters that served to protect our rights to do both foolish and great things - Respect.

cb1000...NO passes discussed

No laws to outside smoking...so if someone wants to smoke..let them

Just as there is No laws about obnoxious kids, barking dogs, watching outside TVs or starting your DP and letting it sit an idle.

Now if camp ground had a "no outside smoking" rule..then by all means the OP was in the wrong.

If I do not like what someone does who is around me..I don't go whining and crying to them and expect them to abide by my wishes. I keep to myself. My neighbor is in his/her PAID spot.

If I smell smoke and do not want to smell smoke..I find somewhere to go to avoid the smoke...just as I would if I didnt like the sunshine beating down on me.

If the OP was sitting there with a bunch of buddies doing something "illegal" that is entirely different...but he wasn't..........so smoke em if you got em!

If people can't be tolerate of others, then why do they subject themselves to areas that contain others?

That's the problem with Planet Earth- all those "others"! What was it that Charlie Brown's Lucy used to say?...Oh, yes:

"I love humanity- it's people I can't stand!"
