Nicotine Nannies claim smoking bans are good for business. But if that were the case, could this list exist, and could it be so huge? (Please note, this is only a small sample of articles available on the subject.)

Smoking Ban Takes Toll on High School Band

Friday, June 4th, 2004

Lexington, KY – Jackpot Bingo leases its parlor to a dozen different non-profit groups on a regular basis. Those groups rely on bingo revenue as a main fundraiser. However, since the smoking ban went into effect last April, attendance at the bingos has dropped by more than 50 percent.
The Tates Creek High School Marching Band stands to lose about $80,000 this year in bingo money.

“We’re trying to supplement this with raffle ticket sales and candy sales, but $80,000 is a large chunk of change,” says Assistant Band Director Andy Critz.

If the band can’t raise enough money to offset the loss, they may have to cancel some band trips or competitions.
