Scotland's smoking ban has caused a loss of £100million in beer sales after just one year

Story here:

Paul Waterson, chief executive of the Scottish Licensed Trade Association, said up to £100m(million) has been lost in beer sales since the pub smoking ban came into effect.

Graham Page, of market analysts AC Nielsen, which conducted the research, said: "We didn't begin to see the real effects of the smoking ban until September."

None of this is news to Clearing the Air, nor the thousands of U. S. hospitality establishments (and tens of thousands of employees) who are experiencing the same revenue losses caused by smoking bans.

Lawmakers need to wake up to the devastating economic crisis triggered by smoking bans and the real motive for these bans.

Private property business owners should make this free market decision on their own........not government nor pharmaceutical nicotine special interests.
