Any body is welcome in a bar...thats the point. Its still private land. This even includes if I run a business in my own home i assume? Even if I have just one employee. Its a load of rubbish. I am not even a smoker. I dont even like smoking but this is such a huge shot at basic private property rights.
What a terrible article. The very idea that the government can ban someone from smoking in their own private business is terrible. It goes against the very freedoms which made this country great. The government is free to ban smoking in all government buildings..fine. Smoking in bars and pubs was getting more and more unpopular naturally anyway. It was probably going to get to a point where only certain select bars would have smoking for the small group of declining smokers there are today.
