A new statewide survey show 71 percent of Washington voters oppose the creation of cigar bars.

The legislature is once again considering a plan that would allow cigar and specialty shops to have smoking lounges.

Carrie Nyssen with the American Lung Association says this study shows the public is against the idea.

"We're just wanting to protect all workers," Nyssen said. "We think it's everyone's right to work in a smoke-free environment, we think it's a very dangerous precedent to set."

The study was funded by the American Lung Association.
