Smoking Ban?

The state House of Representatives recently passed a ban on smoking in workplaces. The bill isn't likely to pass, as it has been effectively killed in the state senate.

Smoking isn't good for your health, and it annoys many people. But it is none of government's business. Banning smoking is a violation of people's property rights. No one has to work for or patronize a business if they don't want to.

Once again, the Democrats think they know how to run people's lives better than they do. Whatever happened to freedom?
