You know what, I'll compromise here and give you one that will fix your restaurant issue. I'd be fine with banning it from anyplace children are allowed to go. While there really isn't much legal justification for this view... there is "some" precedent for erring heavily on the side of caution with children involved. (ie child safety restraints etc)
I was wondering if you were going to say hospital. But I am surprised you would say for safety not health.
Could you imagine going to a hospital that allowed smoking everywhere. Here you are layed open on the operating table and everyone is smoking and blowing smoke in your open body. Or imagine waking up the hospital with the nurse walking in with a cigarette hanging from her mouth and blowing smoke in your face. Good times and I am sure everyone would like that.
