  • Although I have smoked for a good couple of years, I could never understand the concept of smoking and non-smoking rooms, especially in restaurants where the customer would have to walk through a cloud of smoke to get to a "cleaner" part of the restaurant. Second-hand smoke is just as bad, if not worst, as smoking a cigarette yourself, and personally, I do think it is a good (GREAT) idea that banning of smoking is just around the corner. Hopefully, the people I know who smoke, and my family as well, will stop smoking...or maybe it will help.

  • I can hardly wait for Oct. 1 to get here so that all restaurants in Tennessee will be smoke free. It's so nice to go out to eat in Florida, New York, California, Arizona, & probably many other states, because they are already smoke free.

  • In my opinion if they want a smoking ban then the town should forfiet the cigarette tax or not be allowed to sell cigarettes at all. Im a smoker, and feel the same way about Missouri, we are having smoking ban's here also. Thank you

  • As I said before They don't want you to stop buying cigarettes, they just want to to stop smoking them...

    (like that's really going to work for anyone)

    That is much like the fireworks problem here in Shelbyville over the 4th...you could buy them all day long but you were told not to shoot them. Well HELLO, if they wanted to ban fireworks in the county due to dry weather then selling them should have been banned also..

    Same deal with cigarettes..
