They directly affect family members of the anaphylactic and family members of the smoker?
You don't have to be anaphylactic or a smoker to be affected.

Yup.
both are also hard to contain (ie: cigarette smoke and "aerosolized peanuts" and can be airborn. (OK, OK, I know, the "inhalation allergy (for peanuts) is still debated by some and much research focuses on this, but work with me!! hehe.)**

Brown nosing works................
I was a great brown noser in highschool. Had a geometry teacher who used to go off on tangents...............(did I say that)??
Tangents = Stories with a moral that were derived in some twisted way from geometrical principals. (Shudder). The class was last period and I could usually get us to 2:55 pm without much geometry. Hey, wait!! Did I just ramble???

OK - here is my guess. How about both having harmful 'second hand' effects?
If I am smoking, the smoke is harmful to the non-smoker next to me. Just as if I eat a peanut butter sandwich, any leftover peanut residue is harmful to the PA person nearby.

Some people will defend their right to smoke or eat peanuts/peanut products regardless of whom it affects.

I went to a class last year given by a pediatric allergist. She said the even the residue from cigarette smoke that is left in a car or on clothes can be a trigger for an asthmatic that comes in contact with it. I had never heard that before. I thought it was just inhaling the actual smoke. FWIW

Momma Bear,
Hopefully, you can follow this answer; haven't taken a lot of time to think it out...I am working it out as I type...
For years smoking was seen as harmless and more and more people, over years and years, starting suffering ill effects. It was only after years of research and protest that tobacco companies admitted "Okay, maybe it could hurt you a little." Peanuts are sort of the same way...seen as perfectly harmless by most (especially those who don't suffer from the allergy) and promoted by the peanut companies as a "harmless" snack. But as years pass, more and more children are found to be allergic. The warnings for both smoking and peanut consumption to pregnant moms-to-be are ignored and seen as over-zealous. And, those of us advocating peanut-free classrooms are as despised as those asking for smoke-free restaurants and public buildings.
Sort of a ramble...Hope it makes sense.
