Just shocking that it took your state so long to get a statewide smoking ban.
Bar owners in states with bans have reported getting MORE revenue from the vast majority of people who, let's face it, are NON-SMOKERS.

Milwaukee has a bar on almost every corner and we go out drinking on the weekends, that's fun for us. It snows in the winter and its really cold, so I think it would just drive up everyones heating bill from people going in and out every 5 minutes for a smoke, but its a good thing Doyle passed the law that lets owners build a smoking section.

I personaly cant wait for the smoking ban, finally I can go to a bar and not smell like an ashtray in my clothes when I get home. Yes I am a non smoker, I enjoy going out to the bar from time to time for a drink and some dancing without breathing in the toxins of cigerettes

I'm glad there's a smoking ban too. It's a small pain to smokers the tax on cigarettes compared to what's coming for the fat stuffy ugly bags that complain about smoke. You fat sheep quickly vote for bans and back taxes and when they come for you with your excess "carbon footprint" you'll whine like the stuck pig you are. When the vote comes to tax fat dumpy broads, smokers will be 1st in line at the voting booth. How about this SSS, I understand you don't like smelling like smoke. But that's because a fat !@# like you would rather smell like cheap perfume and rotting sweat. When you climb on an airplane and sit by yourself because the airline charged you for 3 seats -(which is coming) and you have to smell your own rotten fat body, maybe then you will remember this.
The attack on cigarettes was nothing more than a money grab. If they had really been concerned about it, why not ban it? Entirely? Why not make it a serious offense for kids who smoke? It's because they pay tax when they buy cigarettes too. Then after years of attacking cigarettes and taxing them, they found that less people smoked and fewer revenues, so make the tax higher. They also found that people got lung cancer at alarming rates who didn't smoke. So how do you explain that? Second hand smoke - a new demon. Higher taxes on smoking and more people quit - so where to now. I know, all the fat people that in the 60's stayed thin from smoking. Now you're all obese and the fat taxes are coming. If you don't already see it then you're paying too much attention to the Quiznos commercials and not enough to the news.
So when it's your turn to pay, my stinky little Chubems, step up and pay and don't whine cause we'll be sitting in the bar thinking "Good" "Slim her down so that we don't have to be disgusted by both her appearance and that horrible perfume covering something up smell that follows you around like Pig Pen in a Charlie Brown cartoon.
Oh ya, and don't forget, a good sheep and comrade believes what they are told, so keep sucking up the dribble in between those cheetos and cookies, chubby.

Hey Roberta,

Good thing about that smoking ban in San Fran.. too bad it's consistently voted one of the dirtiest cities in America, and resides in a state which contains 5 cities in the 'top 25 most smog polluted cities'.. yeah you guys are quite the trend setter! It is strange though, you guys inact a smoking ban, and the earth quake frequencies go up.. show the old minge some love will ya?

To ALL the NON-SMOKERS, in the future, just don't moan and complain about your state and federal taxes from INCREASING TEN-FOLD.
You've bought this on yourselves!
