Well, it looks like the smoking bans are going statewide now. Texas apparently has a ban up for consideration according to Thomas Firey over at CATO in this podcast.
The funny thing is, the reason I think it’s funny, is that Thomas Firey’s final suggestion
should sound familiar to anyone who’s heard me argue the subject of smoking before.
[Blog entries on the politics of smoking]
“Set up a system in which the businesses declare their intention to either be smoking or non-smoking, and let the market decide the outcome.”
May he have more luck arging this with the hardcore Pro-smokers than I have.
