    House Passes Smoking Ban With Exemptions

    Looks like it is passed back to the senate with exemptions to Iowa Veterans Home and places with a liquor license that serves alcohol to over 21 only.

    So you can still smoke in bars...

    Re: House Passes Smoking Ban With Exemptions

    Yeah, I seen that. Why would Iowa Veterans Home be an exemption too? That's kind of odd. Might as well add Joe Smoe's house an exemption too.

    Because most vets smoke, and do you want to be the one to tell them they can't after fighting for our country. Let en do what they want in their club.

    Wasted opportunity. Either ban it all together or don't even try.

    This is stupid. Bars and restaurants or don't even bother. I could care less about what happens at the veterans home or casinos but restaurants AND bars must be a part of this.

    That is a as close to a major victory as I could have hoped with who is running the state.

    "We have a choice here. We can just exempt casinos or we can include other businesses to be fair and would be hurt by this and at the same time keep children out of the smoke filled places," said Rep. McKinley Bailey, Democrat from Hamilton County.
    He is from my backyard... and I know the exact establishment he is 'saving'. Too funny.

    Re: House Passes Smoking Ban With Exemptions

    What is going stink about this is the restaurant/sports bar owners are going to get reamed. Places like Legends, maybe Applebees, Tavern, Felix&Oscars, Orlondos and such - where they sell food but probably really make their bucks off the bar business. Kinda makes an unlevel playing field for them since I gather they won't be able to allow smoking.

    Alot of people didn't like this ban under the premise that it doesn't give the right of decision to the owner - maybe rightfully so.

    But IMO, this is even worse.

    Re: House Passes Smoking Ban With Exemptions

    So what about a bar/grill? Are those 100% smoke free? As long as someone can be in the building that is under 21, there is no smoking?

    Living in a state where all smoking is banned

    indoors (except the indian casinos), I gotta tell you its wonderful. No sore throat, no stinked up clothes and the smokers all smoke just the same, just out on the porch.

    My guess is at a certain hour, say 10 pm, under 21 would no longer be allowed in the establishment, then the owners could allow smoking at that point.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    So if you don't like the places where smoking is allowed then don't freakin go there. It's really simple.
