Public quizzes lawmakers about smoking law

Public quizzes lawmakers about smoking law » Local News » Goshen News, Goshen, IN:

A woman in the audience reminded the lawmakers that many view the ban as a workplace issue.

“It’s tough for me to have government tell me what I can and cannot do when it’s a legal substance,” Yoder said.

At the same time, Yoder said he’s not a fan of local ordinances that ban smoking because it gives businesses just outside a city’s limits an unfair advantage.

Property rights vs the rights of smokers.
I wonder who's going to win this one?
Some part of me wonders when people will take a good long look at the way the economy has tanked everywhere since indoor smoking bans have been implemented.
Take this as an example or even this .
I know these are old,but they show the numbers and count the losses better than I ever can.
This is only from one place.
I shudder to think of the losses on a global scale.
The last link is more recent,but it too only focuses on a few places.
