John Stossel always brings common sense to the smoking ban debate...........here he tells us how to get smoking bans repealed.
I once interviewed the mayor of the tiny community of Friendship Heights, Md. He got his town to pass the most stringent anti-smoking law in America. It banned cigarette smoke outdoors.
"We're elected to promote the general welfare, and this is part of the general welfare," he told me. After I interviewed him, he was arrested for touching a 14-year-old boy's genitals in a bathroom at Washington National Cathedral. The village council finally repealed his law. Finally, we know what it takes to get an anti-smoking law repealed.
Beware activists and lawmakers who buy into the smoking ban activists' false claims.....we will be watching.
