    But it's when so many kids start smoking.

    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    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.

    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.
    Yes, but I am required to conform to certain safety standards to protect the health of my patients. My autonomy ends there. I consider a smoke filled environment a health risk, and no owner of a public establishment should allow it.

    Perhaps I should re-phrase.

    "Smoking" isn't illegal ... cigarettes are some of the most dangerous things ever put on this planet, but still, they're not illegal.

    No pot smoking in the dorm. That makes sense, because it's an illegal substance.

    violating health codes are agaist the law. Smoking is legal.

    Pretty much, plus this is a great debate we are all having.
