65. Because
Edited on Mon Feb-04-08 04:49 PM by ScreamingWhisper
It's not in the least bit illegal.. and you SHOULD not have more rights than other because you are physically intollerant.
It seems to me, if going ito that bar (where you KNEW there were smokers) then whose fault is it you had asthma attacks?
Simply go to another bar where the owner prohibits smoking.
That's my point, The decision to ban from restaurants should have been made at a local level with the individual locations.
Not from one segments preference over another.

Basically all that happened is that the patron-base was flipped like a lightswitch.
ON = Smoker' rights
OFF= No smoker's rights
The thing is, history shows that the segment of the population who revel in banning the smokers, probably won't stop there.
They will find the next socially-questionable habit that annoys them and they will have their new targets.

If you have a smoker in your living room, that's your business alone.
