Leave the bars out of smoking ban



I am not a smoker and I never have been, and I dislike being in a really smoky bar. However, I can assure you that the majority of bar patrons are smokers. I know this because I am a bartender at a popular downtown bar.

I am very nervous about lawmakers toying with my livelihood. The weather will be cooling off soon and people are not going to want to leave their drink inside - due to open container laws - and freeze while they have a cigarette. Bars should be excluded from this law.
