|

no smoking in bars

It’s official. Both the Colorado House and Senate have passed the state-wide no smoking ban. Gov. Owens likely will sign it into law.

The measure would outlaw smoking in most public places, except casinos, cigar bars, and the smoking lounge at Denver International Airport.

I’m against the ban.

I feel for the small bar owners , who unlike the corporate casinos owners did not get an exemption. I feel for those who enjoy lighting up in a bar. And I fear for the rest of us, who have just given the Government another license to tell us what is in our best interest when it comes to our own bodies.
