Smoking in public places is in retreat across the country, and now Charlie Brown, the state representative from Gary, wants
to ban it in bars, casinos and other enclosed places in Indiana.
Brown plans to introduce a bill during
this yearâ??s General Assembly, and will probably get immediate push-back from interests including bars and restaurants.
Indiana isnâ??t the only place where smoking refuses to die without a fight. In the Netherlands, some bars are refusing to heed new anti-smoking laws.
What do you think? To what extent should smoking be banned, and in which locations?
