Selective smoking ban enforcement

Posted by Craig Westover | 11:03 AM |  

Via email comes this note from Kevin --
See the hypocrisy of the Ontario provincial government and their smoking ban (here).

Thank goodness the State of Minnesota isn't in the casino business.
Coincidently, this is the example I used to argue that Minnesota shouldn't be in the casino business.

A state-tribal casino would not just compete with other tribal casinos; it would compete with private restaurants, private hotels and other private forms of entertainment.

Ironically, the state could pass a smoking ban for private bars and restaurants that compete with a state-tribal casino in which a smoking ban could not be enforced.

Do we start to see the problem?
