The most recent city in our area to take on a smoking ban is Conway. The original plan was to not allow smoking in workplaces including bars and restaurants and city buildings to protect workers from second hand smoke.
It has now fallen apart because of an outspoken minority.
Consider This: my family and I recently tried a new restaurant in Carolina Forest. This week when I told people that we went there…the initial reaction was: How could you stand the smoke?
It's time for leaders in our community to realize the benefits of a smoking ban. Change can be hard. I understand that. But, fighting it and staying stagnant is a much more dangerous place to be.
