Should the Legislature pass a statewide smoking ban?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on March 1, 2005
“No way. I don’t smoke, but it’s not fair to the business owners.”
“I would say yes for employee health reasons. I guess they have the choice to work there, but they also have the right to breathe clean air.”
“No, because a lot of business owners are losing money here. I think they profit more if people were able to smoke. I think every business should have a ventilated section, so people can smoke without offending nonsmokers.”
“Absolutely. I cannot stand indoor smoking. I have been happier and healthier since the smoking ban, and it makes me want to go out more.”
