well smoking is not illegal so if it is in a public restaurant and the owners do not mind then what gives the state the right to say well restaurant owner we don't like it so you can not do it if i own a business it should be my choice not the statesI quit smoking three months ago and i cant stand the smell anymore.. it ruins eating..and yea 2nd hand smoke is really bad. Plus banning it everywhere makes it harder to be a smoker..and everyone should quit. That stuff is evil and i have every room to talk cuz im a former smoker. That stuff should be illegal. It kills how many people?!?!
