Otter Tail County MN. says no to county wide ban......

.....and yes to the free market, details here.

After the vote was over, members of the audience voiced their disapproval. But Public Health Director Diane Thorson was cordial........“People can recognize places that have already chosen to go smoke-free and voice their opinions,” Thorson said...

What a novel idea......You mean people can decide all by themselves whether they want to frequent a smoking or non-smoking establishment?.....You don't need a governemnt mandated smoking ban to get people to think for themselves?......how does that work?

I am of course being facetious....but Thorson explains why the debate and waste of taxpayer and pharmaceutical nicotine money should have ended long ago.......people CAN decide for themselves.....where to work, eat, and drink. And such a free market decision allows businesses to prosper and remain open rather than close their doors for good......like the 79 here in the Twin Cities.

The "secondhand smoke is hazardous" scam is all but over, thanks to air quality testing by groups like the American Cancer Society which proved secondhand smoke is 25,000 times SAFER than OSHA regulations.
