Most smoking bans are not the result of a vote. Regardless of a vote what right does anyone have to tell another they’re not allowed to permit a legal act within the confines of their privately owned property?<quoted text>
If 'the government' decides smoking in restaurants should be banned, then the government should and does ban it.
And these smoking bans- for the most part- come from the VOTE of the people, that is how democracies work.
You might notice that drinking is legal yet in some places it is banned.
Since now smoking and drinking is (in some places) banned in parks, I guess it would make sense to you take neither should be restricted.
Then you bring in parks? Wouldn’t that be public land?
You don’t get out much, do you?
