Smoking ban; Our Government has more control over our social lives. Most people either don't know this or just choose to ignore it but, second hand smoke is very harmless to any person. I would be more concerned with the other 1,000 or so toxins in the air that we breathe in every day. I am sure that nobody really believes that second hand smoke is the cause for lung cancer. Lung cancr is genetic mostly and the people who get it usually get it from their work habatat. The only reason that our Government has pushed this lie around is to make more money on taxes of the cigarettes. Don't you think if second hand smoke were that dangerous that our Government would male it go away completly? Lies, lies, lies!

Smoking is bad.

Government inserting itself in our personal lives is worse.

You can still enjoy a "delicious and nutritious" smoke, you just can't share the stench with people that don't.

I am sick and tired of the people we put in office trying to tell us how to live our lives. I do not smoke and I get away from any one that is. If a place I use lets tham smoke I go else where you see we do have free choice. If you want to smoke then please do it where it dose not bother any one thank you
