The City Council’s vote to ban smoking in indoor areas is a good way to help reduce the danger of secondhand smoke. Bar and casino owners argue that there will be lost profit due to the number of visitors that are smokers. But the smoking ban may help business owners in another way by allowing them to have more performers who would originally stay away from areas where smoking indoors was allowed. The City Council’s vote to add this new restriction on smoking will help reduce secondhand smoke.
