    You ain't gotta go into someone else's establishment. So there's no need to tread on their rights.

    Exactly. Why should we have to choke down nasty cigarette smoke while we are eating, just because you don't want to be bothered with smoking outside?

    Bars are different. You should be able to smoke in bars, pool halls, outdoor auditorium, etc, but not restaurants. It's not fair to the non smokers.

    It provides an unsafe work environment for their workers.

    Smoking is ridiculously unhealthy and it is okay for the government to limit the harm.

    But aren't you treading on ours, by forcing us to inhale your smoke? Why can't you just stand outside? Or better yet, wait til your meal is over?

    Nope. Can't tell you how much we don't need your second hand smoke when we are eating. I hate restaurants that allow smoking with non-smokers and I usually stay clear of them. As for bars...perhaps it can be more lax but there's still that problem with second hand smoke. So I say no.

    Smokers are barging into your house and smoking while you're having dinner!

    Why do you have a right to other people's property and labor?

    Um - no? The question wasn't about people barging in my house. My house is a no smoking house.

    The question was about bars and restaurants.

    Smoking is legal. If you want to change it, go make it illegal. Till then it's the property owner's decision. You have no right to someone's property and labor, you can go somewhere else. Workers can work somewhere else, or as pointed out earlier, establishments can install proper ventilation and air circulation to clean the smoke up.
