Smoking bans redux

The Star Tribune has an article with quotes from a lot of legislators about the possibility of getting a statewide smoking ban passed this year. It looks like Minnesota is more likely than not to have a ban enacted, and I think that's a good thing. I see this as a workplace safety issue: if workers at a business were exposed to lead or asbestos in the air, that business would be shut down in short order. It should be no different for carcinogenic cigarette smoke.

The business effect a ban will have will be negligible. It's high time we had a ban in this state.
