What about the other employees, they don't count? So a person with breathing issues doesn't count? He should have to drive an extra 30 miles to find the same kind of business where no smoking is allowed?
The fact that this obnoxious habit of smoking is legal is irrelevant to the subject. It's legal to cover yourself in skunk spray too if you want to. The fact is that it is obnoxious and should no more be allowed then you to be allowed to blast loud music where ever you want to. It's called being a considerate person. If we were all considerate we would not need no smoking laws, but unfortunatley we do.
It is called the free market. If people didn't want to go to a smoking establishment then they wouldn't. If people don't want to work at a smoking establishment then, yes they can find another place for employment.If a smoking establishment got no business or couldn't keep employees then it would change it's policy in order to attract customers/employees.
Are you saying that we should outlaw inconsiderate behaviors? What is inconsiderate? Is it inconsiderate to not hold open doors for little old ladies?

Yes it does.
When someone says a gun owner is responsible for a crime when that gun was stolen from them and they didn't commit the crime is favoring the criminal.
who cares

we are suing for a lot, because we are prepared for a "partial" win

and you do not understand that guns are designed to kill, and baseball bats are just for fun.
Irrelevant distinction. Guns may be designed to kill but so long as there are valid legal reasons to kill, your point is pointless.

We already do outlaw obnoxious behaviors, loud music, urinating in public and so forth. Irrational, inconsiderate fools like you are why we need no smoking laws.

Smoking a single marijuana joint is equivalent to smoking 2.5 to 5 cigarettes in terms of damage to the lungs, mostly because of the differences in how pot and cigarette users smoke.
Actually new studies show otherwise.
"Putting together 20 years of data—and using the magic of statistics to separate the effects of pot from those of tobacco, since people often smoke both—the researchers found that pot smokers seemed to have better lung function than people who didn’t smoke at all."

I was speaking strictly about bars and maybe bowling alleys, private clubs. Places where adults get together to drink and have fun. Nobody should smoke in a restaurant or anyplace that children are present.
There are some strip clubs where I live. I wonder if a girl with one leg could get a job? Too much of a distraction? I'm going to look into it.
a smoking one legged stripper

is there a fetish for that?

Well, you are being inconsiderate and irrational... Why don't we have this same issue over chewing tobacco?

All religions are deceptive nothing more. It is for the big mass religions and all religions too.

You saying that pot is healthier than tobacco?
Healthier?

At least it DOES have some valid medicinal properties, but "healthy" implies that it is akin to eating fruits and vegetables.

Safer?

Yes. Much safer that cigarettes. Unless you smoke the equivalent of one or two packs a day of marijuana. Some people might do that, but in general one or two joints a day-joints which are much smaller than cigarettes-is more typical, while for some, one or two PUFFS a day is sufficient.

If you've got facts to counter that, post them.

Henry, you need to be able to prove the claims that you make or else you are just stooping to the same low level as the theist.

I've been on there before and decided to let the nice Christians enjoy their time together without my bothering.
I did the same with the Catholic is the one true religion thread.

Catholics arguing with protestants, each about how crazy the other is.

Mind numbing.
