There are 3 comments on the Journal & Topics Newspapers story from Jan 9, 2008, titled Mixed Reactions To State Smoking Ban. In it, Journal & Topics Newspapers reports that:

“What if someone comes in, and he's drunk, and he wants to smoke? How do you get rid of him without calling the police, because you don't want to call the police. You pretty much have to use your own tact.”

As area residents rang in the New Year, state law required them to extinguish their cigarettes at exactly the same time. via Journal & Topics Newspapers

This is probably the stupidest law EVER I all for no smoking in Restaruant or even just about anyplace with childred or family atmosphere I can respect that , But a Bar I mean come on Our governer is acting like ADOLF HITLER I think it's unconstitutional we live in a country which is free we pay hard earned to smoke. Im married but I can't smoke in my house so I go to a bar for beer and smoke but now Im gonna stay home cause either Im gonna freze because of the ban just because BLAGOASSHOLE doesnt smoke doesn't mean we should suffer we should start petitioning to remove theis ridiculous banand shove it right up BLAGOASSHOLES ASS WITH AN ASHTRAY ...SIDEWAY'S !!!

I know that most smokers are upset with the ban, however, it's nice to go to a club and not come home smelling like an ashtray. As a non-smoker I just dealt with it as a "hazard to the environment" that I was in, but I will be going out a whole lot more now that I don't have to worry about dying from second hand smoke.
