Re: “Libertarians are wrong about smoking bans

A very important part of the unstated reasoning behind smoking bans is to make
smoking as uncomfortable, unpleasant and unattractive as possible.

Well-ventilated situations where smokers and non-smokers can happily co-exist
would defeat the effectiveness of smoking bans as a tool of social engineering

Re: “Charleston smoking ban still faces challenges in Columbia

An alternative to smoking bans If the public was honestly and truthfully informed about the effects of second-hand smoke, there would be fewer no-smoking laws in this country. A little smoke from a handful of crushed leaves and some paper that is mixed with the air of a decently ventilated venue is going to harm or kill you? There has never been a single study showing that exposure to the low levels of smoke found in bars and restaurants with decent modern ventilation and filtration systems kills or harms anyone. As to the annoyance of smoking, a compromise between smokers and non-smokers can be reached, through setting a quality standard and the use of modern ventilation technology. Air ventilation can easily create a comfortable environment that removes not just passive smoke, but also and especially the potentially serious contaminants that are independent from smoking.
