The bias towards cigarette smokers by the "hookah"bar owner in Morgantown and the wannabe owner in Wheeling is ignorant and laughable! Hookah tobacco is just as dangerous as cigarette tobacco and using the hookah makes it even worse because the smoker the inhales the smoke deeper into the lungs and tends to hold the smoke in longer. Hookah smokers also smoke continuously for smoking sessions that can last an hour or more. It is also possible that the smoking equipment may not always be sanitized properly and could lead to the spread of illness and disease. These people are fools on par with anti smoking zealots who feel it is their duty to protect smokers from themselves. Idiots!

I don't smoke, but these bans are rediculous. Folks need to be free to make decisions, even if they are bad ones.

We are gradually transitioning to a controlled society where everyone is the clone of a "perfect" citizen, and Big Brother is watching your every move to make sure you conform to the socially engineered nirvana mindset.
