I believe the government has some say in the issue. The government spends billions on health care related to smoking. By banning smoking in public places, the government saves money and improves the health of its citizens.
All that that proposition leads to is bigger government. nuf said.

so far, it is only the state governments that have taken action. I am always for the state governments to decide something over the fed. Generally, it is the State government which will know what is best for it's population.

They should only ban in Restaurants because I cant stand sitting down for a good meal and smell cigarette smoke.

The Goverment dictating the activities in private residence outside of illegal activities that can be documented is very,very, scary.

it would be logical as most of the population does not smoke
