      I'm not bashing smokers, but if you look at it from the perspective of those who have to inhale the pollution they spew, it might be more understandable.  I had someone vomit on me once in a bar.  Wouldn't want that to be legal, nor would I want to be peed on, spit on, etc.  It's the same thing.  Smoke in the smoker's lungs, smoke comes out of smokers lungs into mine.  Even those new water/smokeless things should be banned.  Water goes into their lungs, if they have TB or some other disease, it spews out into the air.  What they should do is make cigarettes illegal.  I mean if they are so bad for us, why are they legal?

        Yes, the FDA came out once and said that second hand smoke was the cause for many types of cancers. However, it has also recently made the claim that it did so, from only one study done on it at the time and now that more have been done, it has reversed it's position. So, this argument doesn't hold.

    I am a smoker but have to agree with the decisions of not smoking in public.  I quit smoking for 4 years and then went back to it.  During those 4 years I really noticed exactly how bad smoke smells and how bad it smells on the smoker's clothes.  I don't see why non smokers should have to be exposed to that.  I don't smoke in my house either, even if I didn't have kids I would go outside.  The only place we are allowed to smoke around here and I am glad we can is in the casinos.  I am sorry non smokers but that is the one place I will smoke inside.

    Nobody has to inhale cigarette smoke, if you go to a bar and do its on you, you went there.
