There needs to be a law that you can not smoke within 500yards of a door, whether it be store, restaurant, or what ever it is.
In Indiana and KY probably a bunch of other States peeps can't smoke within 8ft of the door. I've seen peeps walk 6ft from the door leave one foot there and put the other foot out 2ft and smoke. Or they stand 7ft from the door and lean forward to where their head is 8ft from the door (Law doesn't say the whole body has to be 8ft away from the door). Some peeps even take out their tape measures and measure 8ft.

I agree the law should be that they have to be further away from the doors. Even at 8ft the smoke still gets in the buildings.

It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runaway in Season 3 Eposide 4.)
