Protesters from Club Kaos took a stand against the smoking ban and stood outside Macon City Hall with signs and petitions. The group collected more than a hundred signatures in just a couple days.
Spokesperson for the group, James Holden says they're fighting for their rights as adult American citizens.
"It's been shown that when bars independently or cities independently ban smoking, smokers will choose to go elsewhere if they have that option. If they're going to ban smoking it needs to be done either county-wide or sadly state-wide."
According to Holden, other bars and nightclubs have mutual feelings regarding the new smoking rules and have started petitions of their own.
