While the state yet lacks the legal ability to prevent people from smoking in their own homes, there are a few Associations
that do prohibit smoking in the units---though as you can imagine they are few.
Legally, an association could amend their by-laws and CC&R's to prohibit smoking in all areas of the association---however, doing that after there are already owners/tenants in place who smoke might well lead to an expensive lawsuit against the association, and so few associations are ready to take on such a battle.
The only other potential remedy you might have would be to sue the smokers for private nuisance
. A private nuisance is when a property owner does something on their property---even something that is otherwise legal---and yet the result of their action off their property causes a disturbance---generally harm to another.
