A recent poll says most Ohioans still prefer to keep the smoking ban for workplaces and restaurants, but a slim majority would let smoking resume in bars.

Well no one has the right to harm anothers health and for a smoker to say just because they chose the nasty habit its ok and if non smokers dont like it stay at home. Thats not only selfish but it makes you sounds stupid. As far as business loseing money as a matter of fact most have made more money so smokers thats not a good augrment sorry. Now with that said i do feel the smoking ban in bars and maybe a few other places needs to be repealed to much big Govt. in our lives in not a good thing. If they want to smoke at home or in bars then ok let them chose to kill them selfs.But remeber its your habit not mine so have a little respect. I know thats hard for a smoker to understand and ill wait for the feedback from them. Remeber before you write smokers im not saying you dont have the right to smoke im saying have respect for the ones that chose not to take the risk of smoking.

To so you know, Many businesses have closed down and all of them have lost money and customers so I don't know where you got your information, but you are wrong on that count. Many people lost their jobs and business, so not possible to make more money. They lost many customers, lost business, lost money, so there is no way they made more money. Ask any bar owner and you will find out.
I have always been respectful of non smokers in the past. People who have never been around smokers or smoked have died of cancer. So it is not all due to smokers.
I am just sick of people blaming the smokers for it all.
It is a known fact that people who drink are usually smokers so why would a non smoker go to a bar anyway knowing that? Many other places allow smoking and it is a choice if you do or not. I recently went to a restaurant in Ky., they had ashtrays out. I thought how nice, you have a choice, smoke em if you got em. In Indiana it is allowed also. People there have a choice to leave if they do not like it. Just as the smoker has the right to light up if they want to.
The respect I had is going out the window with the smoke.

I agree. I don'[t smoke and think it is stupid. However, there shoud be some freedom of choice involved with this law.
