And by that same token

By that same token, if anyone doesn't like NOT being allowed to smoke in a bar or restaurant, they should stay home and smoke. What's done is done. The bill was approved. Whether or not you agree with it, it's DONE. It's what we have to live with now. That being the case, those that want to smoke and feel strongly enough about it are well within their rights to stay home and puff away to their heart's content. Chalk it up to other things that restaurants are not allowed to choose for themselves. Quite honestly, I'm GLAD it's not up to the restaurants to choose how clean they have to be in order to stay in business. It isn't up to them to decide if an 18-year-old or a 19-year-old is allowed to order a beer in their establishment. There's good and bad everywhere. My government says it is not right for someone to go to a restaurant and engage in drinking alcohol and then kill me on their way home. That same government has now also decided that their second-hand smoke is not allowed to poison my lungs. I'm there to eat a meal and enjoy time with friends and family. Smokers have the same right. Just as I don't have the right to get completely drunk and kill them on my way home, they do not have the right to poison my lungs with their addiction to cigarettes.
