I wonder how many real crimes were committed while cops were preoccupied writing tickets for cigarettes.

I would hate to think that there might be a real emergency going on at the same time someone would be calling 911 about smoking, You know people need to get a life, Almost everything out there will kill you, So what if you smoke, we have rights too!!!

Having a law that prohibits smoking in restaurants is pointless being that you have to walk through the smoke cloud outside of the door. I do think that banning smoking in bars is dumb but I do enjoy eating my food these days without someone blowing smoke over their shoulder into my area.

Ask former (THANK GOD) Governor Kaine. That was his "signature" legislation and only accomplishment while in office.

Let's just hope he is as successful as DNC Chairman as he was as governor.

The law is NOT enforceable. If the individual extinguishes the tobacco product when asked, the police can't issue the summons. There is NO criminal record or punishment, just a fine.

The establishment can lose their liquor license if they are found guilty of repeat offenses.

Good job governor, NOT!

It's funny to see that smokers sit there and complain about their rights, that they have the right to smoke where they want, well ya know what? I have the right as a non-smoker to eat my meal in peace without worrying about someone elses bad habit causing me to not enjoy my meal, and before you say you dont have to sit there and endure it, or you can go somewhere else, ya know what? smokers can do the same thing, just not in virginia! Stop you're whining!!!!!!
Jeez

Can't y'all see this is just another law that doesn't need to be. Free country my butt! If someone is smoking let the restaurant management know it bothers you, if you get no results they lose your business.

What's will be the next stupid law....
