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.)

Lincoln Businesses Say Smoking Ban Is Killing Them

Wednesday, March 16th, 2005

LINCOLN, Neb. — Some Lincoln bars and restaurants said they’re taking a big financial hit three months after Lincoln’s smoking ban went into effect.

“Our sales are down about $20,000 a month,” said Cheerleads Bar & Grill owner Dean Borgmann.

Borgmann is so concerned that on Monday, he and two other bar owners complained to the City Council. They reported that business has dropped 30 percent.

“Our lunch crowds have dropped by more than half. We’ve already cut 14 hours of operation of when we’re open,” Bormann said.

The city said the ban’s first economic impact results will be released in July.
Borgmann said he doesn’t know if his business will still be around.
“I will be very lucky to survive over the summer,” Borgmann said.
