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 police will issue ticket for comedian’s on-stage cigar

Friday, April 15th, 2005

The company that manages the city’s Pershing Center will be cited by police after comedian Ron White violated the city’s smoking ban during a performance last week. Police Chief Tom Casady said SMG of Philadelphia will get a $100 ticket.

“The law says you can’t allow smoking,” Casady said Cigars, scotch and Texas-tough talk are part of White’s act. During the performance at the Pershing Center, a fan shouted out, asking what it was costing him to smoke the cigar at the center. “Nothin’,” White replied. “I said if I can’t smoke, I ain’t comin.”‘

Casady said White will not be ticketed because “he’s long gone.”

Casady said one of his sergeants thought briefly about ticketing White during his act.
“But she said �No way was I going to give a ticket to a comedian on stage with a crowd of 8,000 people,’ ” Casady said. (Brave, aren’t they?)
