I understand whatnon-smokers arefeeling, I don’t likesecondhand smokethere either, but I thinkwe need to be fair tosmokers. I think weneed to accommodatethem by letting themsmoke on the patiosof restaurants, sincethey can’t smokeindoors.
I understand whatyou’re saying abouthow badsecondhand smokeis. But on balance itjust seems like ahuge burden to puton the restaurantowners to have toenforce this policy intheir restaurants.
I support the stepsthe state has taken toprotect people insidetheir workplaces. ButI think that outdoorsmoke isn’t as aserious or urgent aproblem… it just getsblown away.
I think that non-smokers have tobear some ofresponsibility foravoidingsecondhandsmoke in outdoorpublic places.
Why would we wastetime on dealing withthe secondhand smokein outdoor dining? It’snot a priority issue, wehave other biggerproblems we need todeal with right now.
Secondhand smoke atoutdoor seating atrestaurants doesn’tseem like a problem tome, I never see it whenI go out to eat.
People are justgoing to do whatthey’re going to do(even if it’ssomethingunpleasant likesmoking onrestaurantpatios), you can’tpolice their everymove.
Making a big dealabout smoking inoutdoor dining willdrive away smokerswho want to go torestaurants. This istheir community too.
People are at therestaurants and barsto enjoy themselves.They don’t need to bebadgered with signsand rules that spoiltheir enjoyment.
