Some of my more informative smoking ban posts...............come from letters and emails which I have submitted to lawmakers around the country. This is one such post, it was sent to lawmakers as well as the special interest funded groups such as the one the moffit man represents. Robert Wood Johnson Foundation also received an advance copy.
Dear council members and paid pro-smoking ban activists,
Did you know the guise used by your council to pass smoking ban ordinances, "........that secondhand smoke poses a health hazard....." has been proven false by two government agencies? The St. Louis Park, MN. environmental health department and OSHA. In addition the California EPA Air Resources Board recently conducted air quality testing of secondhand smoke and obtained similar readings as St. Louis Park, MN. officials; using the identical methods that the SLP environmental health department used.

http://www.rwjf.org/research/researchdetail.jsp?id=2002&ia=143 $99,000,000.00 funding from Nicoderm affiliated RWJF to American Lung, American Cancer, American Heart Assoc. (any information provided to lawmakers by these and other health organizations as well as "research" universities, who received RWJF funding, is highly dubious to say the least)
In light of the facts that this new air quality testing exposes, you may need to review the viability of an ordinance which is predicated on health hazard.
