I used to smoke, but even then, always respected people rights to not have to smell cigarette smoke indoors. Smoking/non smoking would only work if
they were actually split into seperate rooms. having one side of the room smoking, and the other non, never made sense to me. Outdoors is a different
What I find interesting is how rarely you hear complaints about smoking indoors in Vegas. Yes, there are non smoking floors in hotels, and you can't
smoke in stores or restaraunts, but you can't walk through a casino without encountering clouds of smoke. As a nonsmoker, it doesn't bother me. Maybe
because I expect it?
I do however think it should be up the the owner of said business, whether or not they allow smoking inside. If you own a bar/pub, you should be able
to make that decision. If you lose customers because of it, it's your choice. Even here, where I live, where we are drowning in anti smoking campaign
and laws, there are hookah bars, and cigar bars. Why can't an owner have the choice to have a cigarette friendly bar? If you don't like it, go down
the street to the next bar.
