If it was banned I wouldn't smoke as much, which would be good, and I wouldn't stink and have all those nasty hacking coughs in the morning and I wouldn't have to wash my clothes every night when I got home from the bar. I was out in California and you couldn't smoke in bars and it was nice. Much more refreshing. As long as there's an area outside, it's not an infringement on anyone's rights.

These people have invested their money into these places and it could be the difference between staying in business or going out. If you take smoking away from the city of Atlanta, it's going to have a very detrimental impact on the bars and restaurants and a negative impact on the amount of revenue the city generates.
