I can't believe that the board passed such an ordinace. Hennepin County passed this as well. However, establishments that were effected & were allowed to obtain rights to allow smoking in their establishments. I am a smoker & respect that fact of not smoking in a restaurant, I personally do not like the smoke from others in my face while I'm trying to eat. However, a bar is a bar - 90% of people whom go out to a bar expect smoking around.
I thought we lived in America - THE LAND OF THE FREE!!!!!
What is happening to our world!!!

We were the land of the free. Then the Dems and Repubs started taking more and more freedoms to gain more personal benefits. Support your local Constitution Party!

All right, now come on. You argue that "we are in the land of the free"
How about my right to breathe good air. That means if I want to go out to eat or have a beer, I should be able to do so without breathing your smoke.
As far as I am concerned if you want to smoke that crap, you go right ahead and do it. But to do it indoors where others have to inhale it too is infringing on their rights.
Its a double edge sword. You feel its YOUR right to smoke, which I agree. BUT it is NOT your right to MAKE others smoke.
I feel that if your not smart enough to understand that, you should should not reproduce and continue this line of ignornant people.
Our gene pool definately needs a cleansing.
