In my area, it is possible to have a restaurant where smoking is allowed and comply with all state and local regulations. Ignore franchises, which have their policies set nationally. That leaves maybe a few dozen convenient places I would consider eating out. Three allow smoking, one of those only on their outdoor patio and in the bar area. They all could. Consumers have spoken.You and I want the personal freedom to smoke. Others want the personal freedom to not be exposed to our smoking.
