(excerpt)
INDIANAPOLIS -- Once more Indiana has snuffed out an attempt to ban smoking in the workplace. A Senate committee Wednesday voted nearly unanimously to kill a bill that arrived from the House so watered down, not even the American Cancer Society would support it.

How will they survive?

Quite well of course.

Without a Nicoderm funded, government imposed smoking ban the hospitality businesses in Indiana will succeed, whereas states and localities with smoking bans have seen massive numbers of bar & restaurant closures:

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 500 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


NYC, which has a smoking ban, has a lengthy list of closed bars closed


-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.


How will the customers survive?

By deciding for themselves if they'd like to visit smoking or non-smoking establishments....without government intervention.


How about the employees, aren't they being "killed" by secondhand smoke, as the Nicoderm funded "health" organizations continually tell us?

Let's see what air quality testing and OSHA (the authority on protecting employee health) has to say:

Air quality testing of secondhand smoke (link above) proves SHS is 4 to 25,000 times SAFER than OSHA workplace air quality regulations.

Free markets and freedom of choice....it's hard to see a downside in that.
