Sounds like you missed an excellent business opportunity.

A bar or restaurant is not a public place, it's private establishment that allows the public to enter. The owner for example ca say I don't like your hair color you'll have to leave.

Having said that your willingness to give up the liberty, responsibility and privileges of making your own decisions is appalling. If you're unable to take that on please don't try and force it on the rest of us.

It's the same reason minimum wage and labor laws were instituted. In theory, one could have simply moved to a company that paid better wages. Unfortunately all companies equally paid slave wages for unreasonable working hours.

so how come i cant open a smoking bar for smokers only, with all employees that smoke.. because big nanny daddy "says i cant" all because of a bunch of whinners on capital hill!!!!

i would have a big fat sign at the entrance, that says " all whiners enter at you own risk this is a smoking establishment", sign waver before entering

i can legally go into a bar and get trashed on cruzan 151.. but i cant open a bar that caters to smokers only!!! you don't see something wrong with that???

i say no!!! but what do the nanny staters say???
Drink next to others does not actually endanger other in and of itself. But anyone serving a intoxicated perosn in every state I know of is violating the law with criminal and civil liability. Its comparing apples to oranges ;really. Locally there is no law banning it in such palces but most places do it on their own to avoid complaints and loss of business.I avoid places that allow it because i am not payig to breathe others smoke.There is no right to do anyting on property you do not own and in public places where prohibited'plian and simple.

What they should be forced to do; is simply tell the truth when they advertise!

That would be a great start - Look what we did for this family! -

Show actuall movie clips of those that have consumed their product walking and talking and puking all over the place.

They show photos about "smokers lungs" Let have some photos of Liver problems; The shakes - the hangovers - Lets TELL THE TRUTH FOR ONCE!

Back in the early 80's a Star Hockey Player for the Boston Bruins was drunk and driving - he wiped out a family of 5!!

He only got one year in jail!!

Then your city is the problem. Move here to Las Vegas and you can open your smoking bar for smokers only as soon as you want.

No, the only restriction ever was from 2006-2011 that said the bar could not serve food. That was overturned last year, so as I said, come on over.
