Another Blow to the “Devil’s Weed”

The misguided lawmakers of Baton Rouge, Louisiana are poised to approve a measure that would ban smoking inside bars and casinos. The ordinance already has five of the seven city council votes necessary to pass.

Business owners argue that a similar law passed in New Orleans has driven down revenue. In 2015, Lafayette lawmakers struck down a measure that would ban smoking in clubs and bars.

Sadly, clueless politicians continue their all out war on tobacco – a still legal substance that has suddenly become “cool” to demonize.
