Done with smoking... on paper

Today, the smoking ban went out across Minnesota, and according to the Star Tribune, Wisconsin bars and Minnesota bars are changing strategies for the occasion. Supposedly Minnesota bars are resorting to making patios or spare rooms either to accommodate smokers outside or to add a new way for patrons to enjoy a venue. http://www.startribune.com/462/story/1455207.html

The Pioneer Press has stated several of the points both sides of the ban are arguing.

Those for a smoking ban believe that smoking is bad and no one should be subjected to it or second hand smoke. But, those against the ban state that it will hurt small business and that governments don't have the right to govern adults lives in this way. Also, people believe that if the public really wants smoke-free bars they will stop going to smoking locals.
