  •  Smokers Are the Ones Doing Violence (none)
    They damage other peoples' private property, including meals and drinks they've paid for.

    There's some evidence they inflict bodily injury.

    That's violence. Forcing others to stop doing harm is not violence.

      ...in a dive bar?  Would someone be pissed about being around smoke, in a smoky dive bar?  Of course not.

      This is not just about the places in WA state that you visit.  It's also about many places that you've probably never visited and never will, places that would prefer to remain friendly to smokers, as desired by both the owners and the patrons.  Who the hell are you to decide what people can and can't do with their own businesses that you can choose not to enter?

      There's nothing "liberal" about I-901 at all.
