I do smoke and do not mind the no smokin in public places. I do although think that they should have a place in bars and private clubs that you can. I also do not believe that they should be able to tell you that you cannot smoke in your home, if you have a home business. They also should not be able to tell the truckers that they cannot smoke in their trucks. That is crazy. There is no way they can enforce it. If they are going to keep getting stricter, then just make it illegal. The same goes with companies that will not hire you if you smoke. As long as you are not doing it on their premises, it is not illegal and that is plain, straight out discrimination.

I think..if you were allergic you would be more sensitive to the smoking issue.. Once the smoke is in the restaurant..those who have allergies have to stay out..SMokers can get along with out the smoke while they eat..they can step outside and come back in..but once the smoke is in..what is the person who has lung conditions, asthma, copd etc to do... Talk about right..where are the rights of those who have allergies????

Like I said above, I don't mind not smoking in public places. I understand the fact the restaurants, but the bars, your own home, the vehicles that you personally drive, I do not think they should restrict. If they want it nowhere, make it illegal to even do.

Oh..I misread..but bars.. I don't drink..but what about people who do and have allergies? Are bars associated only with smokers?

The president of Uruguay is an oncologist and one of the first things he did was to forbid smoking in public places. Luckily, I had stopped smoking some years ago.

I bet people in Uruguay are much healthier for the law being passed. When laws are made many mumble but once all is said and done ..I bet the majority is glad it was passed.
