Smoking ban in Corbin is not fair to smokers

Smoking ban in Corbin is not fair to smokers » Letters », Corbin, KY:

 After this law comes into effect, the smokers will no longer have the rights that non-smokers have been given. They will not be able to enjoy a cigarette while waiting on their food. Many restaurants already didn’t allow smoking, so was it truly necessary for government to enforce that all restaurants ban smoking to all citizens in Corbin?

Also, not only is this law not completely fair to smokers, it also might cause restaurants to lose money. Some smokers only go to restaurants that allow them to enjoy cigarettes throughout their meal; therefore, some smokers might decide not to eat in Corbin, which may cost the town and restaurants money.

In conclusion, I enjoy going to restaurants and not sitting in the smoking area. However, I also believe that everyone deserves to have the same equal rights, which in this ease isn’t equal. They do not get the choice to smoke in public anymore, but yet non-smokers lose no rights in this act by government. So really, is this new law that our city has passed truly lawful and fair to all citizens?

Just something I enjoyed reading.

I like reading things that make me feel good.

With the stuff I usually read gems like this are rare.
