"As smokers become increasingly stigmatised, many pubs and restaurants are thinking about banning smokers. Inside Out looks at whether Millender's will be fuming mad if smoking bans get the go-ahead." I got that quote from www.bbc.com "If people don't like my smoking policy then they have the chance to go somewhere else. This is our act of defiance" Passive smoker in Wales "I have respect for the law, but I have no respect for an unfair law. I don't want to break the law, but I feel I've been pushed into it" Adam Lees, New Jersey "At the end of the day it's my pub, not the Government's" Pub owner in Yorkshire In my case study I have looked at the following, why smoking is so bad. And what does to your health, why smoking can lead to lung cancer and other serious illnesses, And Opinions for and against smoking ban.
