Group Says Colorado Smoking Ban Having Negative Economic Consequences

 
Monday, September 10th, 2007

The Colorado Coalition for Equal Rights on Monday denounced the state’s ban on smoking in public places, saying that data from the state’s hurting tavern and bar industry gives the lie to the efficacy of the measure.

As of the first quarter 2007 the Colorado smoking ban has imposed at least $16.8 million in economic damages on bars and taverns in the state, 6.4 percent of previous revenues, and many of our members are experiencing profit declines in the range of fifteen to forty percent,” said Allen Campbell, Senior Vice President of the Coalition.

The Colorado law met with very mixed reviews, including a lot of hostile ones, when it was first enacted, especially in light of the fact that if you work from home, your home office is considered a “public building” and if you’re a smoker you are thus restricted in what you can do in a certain part of your own home.
