Are you happy to hear that the Kansas Supreme Court upheld Lawrence’s smoking ban?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on June 23, 2007
“Yes. That’s great news. I don’t like smoke. I don’t like to smell it when I’m eating, and I don’t like to smell like it when I get home.”
“I think it’s OK. One of the big drawbacks as a musician is that people will leave during the show to congregate outside instead of staying inside to watch the bands.”
“Yes, because they should be looking out for the rights of everyone involved. But when there’s a harmful substance involved … the rights of those who don’t use that substance should take precedent.”
“As a smoker and bartender it’s not good for my social habits or tip money, because people spend … more time outside. But it is nice to go home and not smell like smoke or have to take fresh-air breaks.”
