Ban on Smoking for Top Tobacco State

Posted January 2nd, 2010 by error

In many states, Gary Richards would not have been able to light up a cigarette before biting into his meat-lover's pizza, as he did at Satisfaction Restaurant & Bar this week. But in North Carolina, the nation’s leading tobacco producer, limits on indoor smoking have lagged behind those in much of the country.

You know i enjoy cigars and going to the lounges with my friends i can understand them banning it in bars which was more disgusting than anything but having a cigar in a lounge i think is fine and should be allowed.

Stupid Law which will cost thousands of jobs.

Everywhere a smoking ban has been implemented a multitude of bars and pubs are put out of business. It will cost the state millions of dollars in jobs. Tourist will simply take their business to South Carolina. The bar scene in Charlotte NC will simply relocate to Rose Hill South Carolina in no time. 6000 pubs in the UK have been put out of business due to their smoking ban. Many of these pubs had been in business for over a century. Tavern on the Green in NY couldn't survive the NY smoking ban but that isn't the story the anti-smoking lobby will ever admit. They also won't let their own American Cancer study of non-smoking wives of smokers made public. A study conducted over the course of 30 years. It showed there was no significant difference in cancer rates among people who were highly exposed to second hand smoke.
