Then again, an across-the-board smoking ban, with no exceptions for bars or fraternal organizations, would render that entire argument moot.
County officials worried how voters might react to a ban would do well to note the results of a survey last year by the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network. That survey found 71 percent of likely Republican primary voters supported a comprehensive ban, and nearly that many favored a law with no exemptions.
It’s time for action. It’s time for a county-wide ban — no exceptions.
