All restaurants and bars should be smoke free. If the establishment wishes to provide outside smoking areas they should take up donations from smokers to build these areas.

I think they all should be smoke free, if they have tables outdoor that would be good. California has been smoke free for years and it is so nice to be able to go in a restaurant and not be bombarded with the smoke..it makes your dining so much better.

If a bar or restaurant allows smoking and you don't want to be bombarded with the smoke, then just don't go there. That's what I do and it works every time.

Why? Because you say so? I'm sorry, I thought I lived I. The USA where smoking was still legal. If I as a business owner any decide who to market as patrons- smokers or no smokers, than why have a business? Might as well just let the government own and run all businesses.

If I welcome smokers and you don't like it- don't come splend your money here! Vice versa!!

Stop letting the government control your life, let the customer decide!!

should be up to the owners and the patrons. If certain ones do not care for the atmosphere as far as smoking, they are not by any means forced to enter the place. That is their freedom of choice as is the owner of the business.
I do not smoke myself, but I do respect the other people if they do or do not like it.
It is time to have the government to disreguard the peoples choice , and concentrate on more important things. There are always peope that want to make decisions just to try and make some kind of name for themselves to reallyfeel important so their names might be printed in the paper. They do not have enough sense to concentrate on the things that really count.

Why don't every one mind there own business and affairs and quite trying to conform ALL to your world unless it involves YOUR SAFETY .AMERICA must just be bored and can't handle LIFE LIBERTY & THE PURSUIT of HAPPINESS like it should be .Next time you don't like what 's around YOUR SPACE then LEAVE or MOVE or GO HOME & CRY to YOURSELF in the MIRROR .

aaaaaand then there are other concerns for people, like those ALLERGIC to smoke, or children and adults who have ASTHMA or other breathing problems. It isn't always a problem with just dealing with the smoke, since there are some of us who literally can't deal with it. Kind of unfair that someone can't go somewhere because they could have a serious reaction to the smoke, when a smoker can still step outside.
