    But they don't serve BEER!! Geez...
    The point is they went smoke-free voluntarily, not because of the government's actions. My office where I work is smoke-free, but that is because they wanted a smoke-free environment, not because of a law. Many, many public places have gone smoke-free voluntarily and did not need the government to tell them so.

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Geez, Champ, are you on drugs today (or off them)? You aren't making sense. It's about my right to go wherever I want without breathing smoke.

    You're completely missing the point. Nobody has ever died from a disease attributed to second-hand Big Mac sauce.

    Are you against all saftey regulations the government imposes on bars/restaurants? fire codes/food contamination/emergency exits/etc? People can choose not to go to a bar if they think the roof might collapse, but there are still rules that say the roof must be sturdy.

    No I'm not, because it is now illegal to smoke in bars and restaurants in many states. Just as it is illegal to serve beer to underage patrons. It is now the law.

    Just as each state sets their legal drinking age, though that is with the big hammer of losing federal highway funds if they don't set the age at 21.

    The elected officials in those states passed the law based on the feedback they received from their constituents. If most of the public supported smoking in these establishments then it is unlikely the state legislatures would have passed smoking bans.

    You have that right, but there will be risks associated with it.
    Such as:
    1. Less patients possibly or maybe more
    2. More punches to the face when they feel the pain

    The point is you as the business owner have the right to make the laws in your business. The customer then has the right to either come to your business or not based on those rules you have set forth. You could set a rule that each person much have insurance in order for you to work on them. That is something that could potentially hurt business but you may feel it would be better in the long run. The government should not be the one to step in and tell you that you can or can't do that.

    Even though they are smoke free I still won't go to McDonalds because the food sucks and they don't serve BEER!

    It's illegal in plenty of places, that's what this whole thread is about.
