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.)

Tavern Owners: City’s Smoking Ban Has Hampered Business

Monday, December 12th, 2005

MADISON, Wis. — Five months after the city’s smoking ban was implemented, tavern owners continue to blame the ban for declining business.

Joe Klinzing, spokesman for the Coalition to Save Madison Jobs, said that regular customers are no longer coming in and virtually no new customers are replacing them.

Klinzing said that he blames the smoking ban.

He said that because of slower business, payroll at his bar is down $17,000. He said that that means the regulation is actually taking money from the same workers the ban was designed to help.
