BUT, I think a business owner has the right to control the conduct in his own place of business.

No, he does not. He does not have a right to deny people a safe and clean working environment and he does not have a right to pose unnecessary risks to their health. Non-smoking in the work place should be the norm, without people having to fight to claim their rights, or being fired for wanting an avoidable risk avoided.

That's basically Godwin's law, which states (as an observation) that a thread is as good as dead when the n-word is brought into it.
