Are we naive enough to think that just because lawmakers pass smoking bans people are going to obey them?Smoking bans are not about health, since Clearing the Air readers know about the environmental health department air quality testing which proved secondhand smoke levels in bars and restaurants are 500-15 times safer than OSHA guidelines. So they (smoking bans) must be an effort to socially engineer the general population to adhere to a strict tobacco prohibition.....however, we know what Americans thought about prohibition then and the new resurgence, ie. smoking bans, are not likely to fare any better.
In fact here's a recent law breaker in our midst......oh my, how ghastly.
Which reminds me, because the politically correct media only reports when a smoking ban passes, we at Clearing the Air thought we would report the recent smoking bans that failed. The failed smoking ban attempts can be found here.
So take heart freedom loving Americans and business owners, prohibition didn't last in the 1920's......and it is certainly not a done deal now.....no matter how many laws politicians try to pass.
And of course, the fact that lobbying efforts toward smoking bans are almost exclusively financed by pharmaceutical nicotine interests also doesn't help their cause.
