Cause it is all immigrants that work in the convenience stores that sell most of the cigarettes, and now that you cannot smoke in bars, they wont be selling cigarettes so the convience stores will go out of business and the immigrants the used to work there will be out of jobs, so they will commit crimes for a living. It is so simple how Kane has ruined Virginia and put all of us at risk!

Damn you are smart. You are able to see the problem and without beating around the bush spell it right out. Could we make you Gov next year? O'Yes. Are you having a special on white robes this week?

As a pregnant waitress, I really appreciate this.

Its tough to find another job these days, so rather than rely on the government, I am waiting tables to support myself and my child. I'm glad i can do it now without being poisoned and poisoning my unborn baby.

How many of you opposing this ban dare to call yourselves pro-life?

If you really care for your child...please stay away from the kitchen as there are all kinds of nasty toxins whafting in the air.

Beijing Daily also reports that Beijing health authorities found more evidence of the link during a 5-year research project. They found the same proportion of women who cook suffer lung cancer as women who smoke.

For the sake of your child...you really should find another job.

Smokers in VA should be happy. They now have their own little rooms where they may smoke to their hearts content. Not only that, but they don't have to contend with anyone who wishes to be smoke free or live a healful type life.

Glory glory, if the smokers don't have to put up with the anti's sticking their noses in for a whiff of smoke.

You might want to check out a book about Chinese medicine. Chinese medical practice is total nonsense and their understanding of disease is similar to that of Western medicine in the 14th. century. I know one of the principals who brought chinese medicine to America, and I could not possibly take any chinese medicine seriously.

Don't you hope that the ones that are enforcing the law aren't pregnant? The ODH in Ohio doesn't give their workers protection in the way of clothing or masks to wear. Obviously, they don't care about employees as much as they cry they do.
Ironic isn't it?

My friend the chinese medical doctor has said some really asinine things, including a belief that tobacco smoke is helpful in treating asthma. In China, the state owns the Panda tobacco monopoly and imposes massive taxes on imported cigarettes, and so the medical establishment there does not recognize any harmful effects of tobacco smoke. Keep in mind that in China, the government will summarily execute anyone who speaks out against the interest of the state. Whoever quoted this chinese medical study is a complete and total idiot, don't let them upset you, after all, your interests won the battle. Let the losers be mad, and have a good laugh at their expense. And to whoever thinks that a chinese medical journal is anything but a silly fairy tale, go drink some snake venom.

Pity the addicted smoker. Stigma hangs over their heads like the toxic cloud of tobacco smoke one often sees just above their heads..

Many antis are pro choice on the abortion issue.

Do a little research.

They really aren't your friends.
