The wishes of the finest do gooders in our state will be met. We will have a smoking ban in effect.
The finest representatives were put to the test on this issue and failed. Somehow, in the test of constitutional understanding, there are few in our political system who could muster even a barely passing D-. Core beliefs aside even for "conservatives" who found their "pet peeve" to be in stark contrast to principles they had presumably held. In the end I guess its ok to tell people how to run their business, who may attend it, and now what they can consume while there.
Funny, how the end results of such interference in matters doesn't make the light of day until after its too late.. How convenient..
