Well apparently WV has passed that %%^&*(%$#@#@$%* smoking ban and this includes bars! This is one of the biggest crocs of s*** laws I have ever seen! What gives the gov the right to tell anyone what is good for them? In my opinion Phillip Morris and R.J. Renolds should start an all smoking State! None of those stupid anti smoking ads, they pay farmers more for growing tobacco, every public place requires smoking, and bitchy non smokers are put in jail for not smoking in public places espcially *((())&% bars http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

lol! Although this is true, it is still a choice to smoke or not. I can understand the resteraunts banning it or at the very least let them have a seperate place for smokers! As for the bars give me a break! http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Sweet and short, Carnage and Nxs smoke but I dont . http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
I would have never guessed you didn't smoke irs! And gift from god is a little far off. I know ppl that only smoke when the drink or goto bars. Maybe next they will ban fat ppl from buffets, or just ban alcohol altogether. Maybe instead of banning smoking there should be non smoking and smoking bars or let it be up the the owners of the businesses! http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
Yeah I agree. At the very least it should be up to the owner of the bar to decide whether he/she allows people to smoke.
I am one of those people that you mentioned:

Not all the time though, so if this crazy law was brought into effect over here it wouldn't bother me at all.. would kinda ruin the atmosphere of the place though.
Oh well, that sucks for you Nxs. http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif
Yes, yes it does suck for me and every other free American. Well I suppose I will just have to move to a different state lol http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

the owner of the bar cant control people by telling them to smoke here and not to smoke there i think the law is needed here to control smoking chaos http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
Sure they can non smoking bar = no smoking anywhere, smoking bar = smoke em if you got em http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif Now take you and your law somewhere where it will be appriciated http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
04-09-2003, 03:54 PM
Setting your own rules wont be appriciated by the law http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif
Yeah I know, just had to let off steam cause it really pisses me off and you happened to be the one I got to take it out on lol http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

Well back here in the UK, they recently passed a law where by the cig company's cant advertise their product anywhere, no avertising aloud. so you forget they even exist, until you go to a soccer match and you get the smoke blown right into your face by a fat overwieght drunk with lung desease and aids --- oh did i say aids i meant hearing aids... cos they are old http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/crazy.gif

Don't know how it works in France or USA, but in this part of Canada Canada in some of the bars we've got smoking and non-smoking sections or floors, so you could choose where exactly you want to sit. And people smoking in non-smoking sections can and WILL be kicked out or fined or both. And all that actually IS enforced by some government of provincial by-law, so it's been working out really well for us. Of course it's not in all of the bars but only some of them, but I think it's the best solution that everybody could settle for.

Anyway sorry to hear about that Nxs, that really sucks. I'd probably go insane if something like that was to happen in Ontario... Aw well, weren't you planning to move out after you become certified? http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/xmas.gif
This is true, although I have about 60 or 90 days b4 the law goes in effect http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

In Norway a similar law is being introduced at the beginning of 2004. A TV station interviewed the owner of a restaurant who wanted to start early with the no smoking thing, just because he wanted to prove that he'd lose customers etc. Well, a week passed and he actually got more customers...
A resturaunt I don't have too much of a problem with cause I can eat and leave, but a bar!!! That's just retarded http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

agreed. I come to a restaurant to eat (well, potentially, because I'm too poor of an SOB to dine out http://www.gamershell.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif ) and in a bar I want to drink beer, listen to music and occasionally smoke cigs.
