Freedom of Choice


The blog I entered yesterday inspired me to do a study with equal bias, we’ll see how it goes.

Now I’m going to read you some arguments people have given for and against a law to prohibit smoking in most indoor public places, including all workplaces, public buildings, offices, restaurants and bars:

Those pushing for Freedom of choice say that the science behind the ban is Junk Science that has been thrown out of court by a federal judge, the Congressional Research Service and highly questioned by a former tobacco control activist. They firmly believe that the property owner should not be stripped of property rights on very weak statistical evidence that wouldn’t hold up in a court of law.

Those opposing freedom of choice say that everybody has the right to breathe smoke free air. They point to studies that they commissioned that claim no economic harm is done to business and claim that it actually may be beneficial to business. They feel that there is no way that the free market works and that there is no way that smokers and non-smokers can be accommodated and that government intervention is needed.
