Beacon Journal | 11/14/2005 | Council will discuss ban exemptions
The older I get, the less I care about people whining about their businesses being affected by a smoking ban. For years we non-smokers have put up with you. There is good evidence that second hand smoke is a health problem. Allowing smoking in bars & restaurants after 10 PM is useless - when do most people go to bars? Not before 10. Besides most places do not have a good enough system to clear out the smoke (and resulting odor) in time.
If your business is that dependent upon people killing themselves and others, maybe you need to re-evaluate your business plan.
