I am looking at opening a bar/coffee shop for smokers ONLY. It's going to be called "Smokers Haven". You will be able to get a coffee or beer and have as many smokes as you like at the tables that will all have ashtrays. If you are not a smoker you are not allowed in. Everyone will be frisked and if you have no smokes you will be thrown out. (At least have a lighter with you).

I am so tired of these non smokers bitching and complaining about smoking and all the bans, I get it, smoking is bad and we don't want our kids inhaling it while you are having a nice dinner or the group of smokers near a business entrance and you have to go through the cloud of smoke to get into the business or get out, but this banning of it every where is ridicules. We went from smoking everywhere, movie theaters, planes, restaurants to not being able to smoke anywhere, now you can't even smoke in a park, it's outside hello!!.

Therefore I'm opening my own bar, you can smoke as much as you want and stay indoors so you don't have to freeze outside wanting to have a smoke. Non smokers GET OUT AND MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!! Who's with me on this?

Frisking them? Is that legal?
What about people who may not be smokers, but are interested in it? What about smokers who don't have a lighter or cigarette on them?

Restaurants and businesses can choose whether or not if they'll allow smoking in their buildings. It's not a ban, but more of a "call for decency". Certain places don't want you smoking in their buildings because it's unpleasant, or because they don't want people littering. Planes are obviously for safety reasons, especially since they use recycled air. Parks don't allow it more or less because of litter. They don't want a ton of cigarette butts on their grounds.

Therefore I'm opening my own bar, you can smoke as much as you want and stay indoors so you don't have to freeze outside wanting to have a smoke. Non smokers GET OUT AND MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!! Who's with me on this?
Good luck :3

Frisking is legal in clubs, when you go to some night clubs they frisk you to make sure you are not bringing in a gun, establishment rules.

I'm just going to use the same excuse when my bouncer frisks the person for cigarettes, safety first!!

You've got to be kidding me.....Do you know how much unlawful issues you will have? You can easily provide smokes in the lounge/bar area. frisking someone and kicking them out because they don't have smokes is discriminatory.

There are few places left in the US that you can smoke and drink inside. Those places are rare gems.

Really, smoking cigarettes is probably the one vice I miss the most. I could go the rest of my life without ever drinking or smoking weed again. But I really liked cigarettes.

Fair enough, I can just put an unlit cigarette in my mouth and chill.

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations.
A singular development of cat communications
That obviates your basic hedonistic predilection,
For a rhythmic stroking of your fur to demonstrate affection.

My house/bar rules, just like when you go to a store and the sign says "No Shirt No Service"

My sign will say "No Smokes, GET OUT!!"

I'm thinking on opening a 24 hr sausage sizzle joint.
How many times at 3am have you thought to yourself.
Man , how great would a sausage on bread be right now. ?
You go to make some and you realize , the sausages are in the freezer frozen.
Panic soon sets in , your not going to be able to sleep until you get that bread sausage combo, onions, and sause of your choosing.

A sausage on a piece of bread is so underutilized.

I also collect stamps .

I will invest $50,000 in to the business for a 50% share in the company. This is a great idea, sausage on a bun at 3am is the best.

What are you going to name the place "Lips and Assess"

We non-smokers are also getting tired of smokers complaining about having lung cancer when it is their own fault in the first place.

The only ones complaining are the non smokers when they do get lung cancer "OMG how could I have gotten lung cancer, I never smoked a day in my life" Boo hoo maybe because you worked in an asbestos building your whole career. Smokers don't complain about lung cancer, they know the risk is there. It's called personal choice, you take my choice away, I get pissed off, this is why I'm opening up my own bar "Non smokers are prohibited from entering" "Smokers only club" Non smokers will have smoke blown right into their faces at the front door!!!

Its a personal choice , not a smart one though when it comes at the price of your own health (and money aswell)

It would be really nice if they gave you an option between tyrannous taxes and donating to cancer research or something.

I'm still opening my smoking bar. I found a way to circumvent the political red tape on this, it's called A PRIVATE CLUB. Smoking members only, you pay $50/year and you can smoke all you like at my club, it's no different then my house, I can smoke all I want.

Non smokers are banned from entering the club!! A bouncer at the door will search each non member prior to entry for cigarettes, no cigarettes no entry.

We will smoke and drink coffee in comfortable chairs while the non smoking, politically correct, cold press juice drinking, helicopter parenting, green peace tree hugging hipsters can stay outside and go to their juice bar!!!!
