Smoking Ban Stuff
One subject I've tended to avoid on my blog is the proliferation of anti-smoking bans in bars, restaurants, and the like. It's probably because I've found no support for my opposition to such bans, even among self described libertarians. Rather than rehash the same old arguments, I just wanted to link to Jacob Sullum posting on the Reason blog about research into the effects of smoking bans on businesses bottom lines. Some policymakers have made the argument that smoking bans are actually good for business - but, as you can read, that doesn't really make a whole lot of sense.
