This a rabbit hole that we could all go down. When I go to most cities in the north, I feel all kinds of things I don't want to be around. Mostly stench and bad accents.

As long as smoking areas are confined and the people entering them are doing so willfully, I see no problem with them.

I am no fan of smoking and generally avoid places that allow it. The secondhand smoke is also a hazard to employees in these establishments.

Nonetheless my libertarian side says let these restaurants have at it, provided they keep it from messing with employees.

I grew up in a generation where smoking was far more accepted and commonplace and the no-smoking policies helped motivate me to hang it up.
