Smokers go outside as tobacco ban comes in
RIVER FALLS, Wis. - Love it or hate it, Monday, July 5, marks the end of most indoor smoking in Wisconsin. Some call it the "smoking ban," the "clean air act," or the "smoke-free law." Legislators called it "prohibition against smoking" when they added a new section to the law regulating...

Connection between gambling, no-smoking law disputed
Charitable losses cause by the smoking ban, you have to be kidding! More than 85 percent of Minnesotans don't smoke, so does that mean that only smokers buy pull tabs or play bingo? I know several people that have cut back or stopped "gambling" because they just can't afford it like...
