I live in Meridian but I ONLY go to the non smoking bars in Boise for music and dancing. Some day Meridian and other cities will wake up. For now, I avoid them.

As it should be. Freedom for them to choose how to run their business and freedom for you to choose which businesses you spend your money at.

That's kind of how I feel about it. There are lots of non-smoking options (neither my wife nor I smoke, and our kids don't like the smell of course), but I don't like restrictions and regulations on everything. There are too many states that adopt the nanny state philosophy, and for every rule, restriction or regulation that we might think is good (non-smoking), there are others where we might feel differently.

An airplane might be one option where it doesn't make sense to have a smoking option, since it's open to everyone and flights don't have as many options as restaurants.

Let the smokers go where they can smoke, and if we don't smoke, we have other options.

When I moved to the little town of Hagerman I was quite surprised to find one of the better so called restaurants in this small town had an adjoining bar. In the bar they still allowed smoking, but sadly ironically the door that joins that restaurant to the bar is wide open so the stench of the smoke is right in the restaurant as well. Sure I hate smoke and the smell it leaves on one's clothes let alone lungs. BUT I've made the decision to simply not step into this place. There are options. Come to find out that a person that knows the owner real well explained when the law went into effect, the owner was given the option of paying a higher penalty tax to keep the smoking allowed in his place of business. They and the one other bar in town opted for this. I guess if that's your thing it works. I just know where I'm not going

I have yet to be in a place here that allows smoking.

10 Days until I become an Idahoan, and it's exactly this kind of thing I'll be fighting against... not because I give a crap about smoking, but because I give a crap about liberty; something lacking in my soon to be former state, and plentiful in ID.... it needs to be protected. The government has no business telling people where they can and can't smoke.. that's up to the owners of the property. Nobody is required to go to a bar, and if there's enough demand for smoke free bars, the market can figure it out.

Based on that logic, I should be able to drive my vehicle while heavily intoxicated and while disregarding all traffic signs and traffic laws. That'd be fun. You nor anyone else is required to be on the roads while the rest of us are going [mod cut].

So, why are people responding to a six year old thread? Have the laws in Idaho changed since 2012?

That's not the same logic at all [mod cut].

I'm sorry, but smoking in public and compromising the health of others around you is not a liberty that deserves protection. Smoke in your own home. You can't go out in Boise and smoke in public areas including bars and restaurants, otherwise you will get fined.
