I use to smoke. I dont deny anyone's right to be able to smoke, when and where. What gives the city counsel the right to dictate where you can smoke?? I totally understand if they want to ban it from city buildings, which it pretty much already is. It should be up to each individual business owner, and their reputation as such a business, to decide for themselves. Unless its on city land or a city ran business, or unless the city wants to waive any and all property taxes which would then technically make them the property owner, then the city should leave it up to individual business owners to decide for themselves, within the "limits" of federal and state laws, how their businesses should be ran!!!!! Yes this type of ordinance is happening all over the country, but dont these types of ordinances fall under a so called "dictatorship". Our country is overrun with these kinds of things. What happened to our rights as Americans to decide for ourselves?? Leave JUST one thing for us to be able to decide for ourselves what is right, wrong, appropriate or not?????!!!!!
