Smoking Ban

February 02, 1992

The restaurant lobby claims that if the City of Los Angeles adopts a no-smoking ordinance diners will flock to Beverly Hills. Beverly Hills had a no-smoking ordinance, but rescinded it because restaurant owners claimed that diners were flocking to Los Angeles.

If Los Angeles, with its expansive city limits, were to adopt the no-smoking ordinance, I'll bet Beverly Hills, Santa Monica and other cities would be quick to follow.

The restaurant lobby's defeatist dialogue also applied to the airlines no-smoking policy and, lo and behold, I can now fly from coast to coast without inhaling secondhand smoke!
