    I was under the impression that a bar was a privately owned business, not a public place.

    Where do you think the word "pub" comes from?

    btw: Most pharmacies are also privately owned businesses. So I guess that means you support their right to not fill prescriptions for drugs that conflict with their moral beliefs.

    Depends on your definition of public.

    So, if you make the bar a private bar then there shouldn't be a problem, correct?

    But they are licensed and regulated. Why can't the same thing be done with a bar that allows smoking?

    An ohio county judge?


    yes, now is the time to start celebrating!



    Hey Ravir.. didn't you know that a private business is simply NOT private as long as the public walks through the doorway? I mean, the root word of BAR proves as much!

    I haven't researched the matter thoroughly, but I do believe that is the case. I think you can still smoke down at the old Elks lodge.

    For better or worse, that's pretty much the fact of the matter.
