If you troll people for habits that look vaguely like smoking, you might be an anti-smoking Nazi. You would also be in good company alongside the American Lung Association. From Complex:

In a statement obtained by TMZ, the association described DiCaprio‘s vaping tendencies as “deeply troubling…”

…the association argues that DiCaprio’s behavior exposes those around him to cancer and other “secondhand dangers.”

Yes, like bouts of pretentious snobbery. The campaign against vaping, an activity which is 95% healthier than smoking, demonstrates that some anti-smoking crusaders are little more than busybodies. It’s not about “secondhand dangers.” It’s about controlling people’s personal behavior.
