Smoking bans take the profit from legitimate the smoking and drinking continue at home

THE days of being able to enjoy a cigarette and a drink at your favourite pub are a thing of the past.

But Michael Castle has rebelled against the smoking ban by setting up a bar at home where his family, friends and neighbours are free to light-up with gin and tonic in hand....

Proving once again that smoking bans are destructive to businesses and jobs in the hospitality industry:

3,382 UK pubs closed after nationwide smoking ban

South Dakota's smoking ban, just one month old, has already cost the state, charities, and local hospitality businesses millions of dollars in lost revenue

1,000-2,000 US bars & restaurants closed after various smoking bans were enacted

Nearly 400 Mpls / St. Paul bars & restaurants closed after smoking bans were enacted

Casino revenue losses in Colorado & Las Vegas after smokingbans

Washington State gambling revenues fall sharply due to ban

Trump & Atlantic City casinos lose significant revenue after smoking ban

Illionois smoking ban eliminates revenues in casinos

900 Pennsylvania bars and taverns have been reported closed since their smoking ban passed

-economists at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis have released analysis that says Illinois lost over $200 million in state and local revenue by placing the smoking ban on state-licensed casinos.

Meanwhile, the bans do little, if anything, to actually reduce smoking rates:
