However, in nearby Missouri, you can smoke anywhere. Any time.

Wrong.

In a restaurant, I can understand...but banned in a bar? Geez...why don't they ban liquor too?


It`s possible to drink liquor without making everyone within a few yards drink it too.

You`re not allowed to crap on the floors wherever you feel like it. Is that also a ridiculous restriction on your freedom? If not, why not? Yes, it stinks and it`s disgusting and some poor sod will have to clean it up. So it`s just like smoking, only far less harmful.

Smoking has long had a massively privileged legal status. It is well past time that privilege is reduced. No other drug use has anything like the degree of privilege that smoking still has even after restrictions like this one.

I live in Arkansas and you can't smoke anywhere around here. Not in restaurants, not on college campuses, and not in most bars. I`ve only ever been to one bar where you could smoke inside.

As a nonsmoker, I love it. It means I can taste my food when I go into restaurants. A lot of cigarette smokers really have no idea how strong that smell is when you`re not around it all the time.

However, in nearby Missouri, you can smoke anywhere. Any time.

They banned smoking in any public restaurent/bar (aka food provider) larger than 40 square emters (roughly 400 square feet) in Denmark years ago. People got up ina rms, but regardless of a fe wof the old-man hideouts, most of us (and I say that as a bartender) love it. It means work for my colleagues and I doesn't involve second-hand smoke, people cans till smoke outside, and the inside of the bars and restaurents got so much better, resulting in new clientel.

In the end, this sin`t about your "rights" or "freedom" as a smoker. It`s about the health of everyone else around you.
