OK here's the deal my Dog has been having a severe breathing problem at night and the Docs still have no clue , so all my inside of house toking has ceased.
(my wife is also now bothered by the strong smell of MY Perfect smelling weed (thks James the perfect) LOL

OK so I want to build a small yet very efficient filter devise to eat ALL of my smoke I exhale into the room
Here is my idea and lets see if we can build on it Thank You Open to all suggestions @Tattered Old Graywolf and other mechanical minds here.

I plan to start with the smaller charcoal filter and mount a vortex fan onto it blowing air down through the filter
and a flexible hose (^ inch AC cooling air tube) on the other end that can be held in hand while exhaling smoke into it.
Have a simple off and on switch along with maybe a fan speed controller for noise reduction.
Quick flip and smoke should be gone.
I wonder if I should work a Hepa filter into the works too?

You can increase effectiveness with a sloff tube. Paper towel roll, 3-4 sections of rolled up paper towels in or dryer to sheets. One or two I spray with ozium. Not be too tight, so you can blow air through. Cover out end with paper towel material, secure with my rubber band.

Blow smoke through this ( I use one to cut it down or one of my cats seems to get to coughing) If you blew it into your planned device, it should kill all smell. I wondered about such a setup, hopefully the filter won't quickly plug from resin forming, then everything sticking to it and clogging it up? I'm wanting to try it.

this is our bedroom smoke area. Not to fancy but it keeps the smoke from the room and the dog too. The porch is much nicer but not always accessible. Easy to take in and out too for smoke breaks. Do you happen to use an oil diffuser around your house. I found out that my cat louie was super allergic to them after almost killing him before realizing it. As much as I love my oils, I only use my sage spray now. Louie also loves to catch a buzz and always comes in my lap for some second hand smoke. I guess he does like some herbs…
Th ats to good not to like. .
