Just sitting here and reading all the comments on this subject, and many are so stupid and sound like 1st graders!
#1 cigarette smoking is LEGAL......and alot of companys make there employees smoke in there cars or outside of the grounds. That I can agree with because won't have to listen to the a-holes complaining about second hand smoke!

#2 Facts show that the number one reason why health insurance is high, is because of the gunshot victims going to the hospital is why.

#3 Like a earlier post, Health insurance company's saying pushing about the cost because of smoking, and showing a HUGE PROFIT, every quarter! Is it the smokers or the other issues that raises prices for health care? There's more issues then smoking!

#4 Private establishments should have the right to have people smoke there or not, NOT the Goverment telling them what to do! They own the business and should be able to do what they want in there business. And if patrons disagree, DON'T GO! Bottom Line!

#5 If a company don't want to hire someone because they smoke, then to me, that's discrimation!

#6 MLB, NFL, NBA, All have to hire minortys, and there all PRIVATE COMPANYS, BUT have to go by the rules, so if someone is more quality for the Position and is White, then he won't get it, because they have meet a quota to hire minoritys, is that right in a Private Company? Is that not discrimation also?

#7 It's all the goverment and there all corrupted, and how silly it seems, no one in office will be good enough, it'll always be something, taxes, laws, etc, btw on the news today, it's going to cost us taxpayers OVER a TRILLION dollars to pay for the stupid/dumb war in iraq! Which we SHOULD never been over there! But GOD BLESS OUR MEN AND YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN, PROTECTING US, but for what I have no clue? Because Iraq will never change! R.I.P. FOR ALL THE MILTARY SOLIDERS THAT DIED DUE TO THIS WAR!


Well that's my opinion and I no I'm going to get blasted because of it, but you know!
what difference does it matter, people have there opinion and that will be it! So go ahead and blast me, but that's my feelings and how I feel about this subject and the goverment and all the stupid laws coming out!

UNREAL!

You know who else chews up a large amount of health resources pregnant women. They are able to work less and less the further they get along in their pregnancies. Also true Muslims as well because they have to take extra breaks to prey. And you know what is similar between smokers, pregnant women, and Muslims they all have made these choices themselves. These horrible people should be cast out of society. OBVIOUSLY I don't mean this because I am not a member of the new NAZI party. I see more comments about illegal aliens, homosexuals, and smokers because hating Blacks and Jews is no longer accepted so you HATE-MONGERS have to find a new scapegoat to blame for their own shortcomings.

Regarding Fact #1 Cigarette smoking is not legal in public places anymore!
Fact #2 Gunshot victims may be a factor in rising health care costs but I never heard it was the #1 factor.
Fact #3 Yes there are other issues but cigarette smoking is a large factor in rising health care costs and could easily be avoided.
Fact #4 Private companies do have a choice of what goes on in their business as long as it does not affect the health of other people.
Fact #5 If a company does not want to hire a person because they smoke, that is not discrimination that is good business. Smokers cost too much money in health care costs, absenteeism and excessive long breaks
Fact #7Irrelevant

And your comments sound like pre-school.

You can say whatever you like, but DON'T blow your carcinogenic cigarette smoke on me, and DON'T tell me where publicly I can or cannot go!

Because 'other' things cause death and high ins. prem. does that mean we should just forget about the effects of smoking?

BTW, drinking alcohol is LEGAL, but if you harm me while you are intoxicated you are liable.
Also; driving is LEGAL, but if you injure me with your car you are liable...Get the drift?

82% of Ohioans do not smoke and that's who passed the smoking ban; sorry, it's a democratic society.
