This is, I believe, a salvo in the disinformation approach that typifies efforts to subvert smoking regulations.

The SD law gives the authority to regulate use of tobacco products solely to the state legislature. Last year the legislature passed a law adding bars, casinos, and video lottery parlors to the public places covered by their smoke-free statute. The long-drawn-out and hard-fought pettition process that followed resulted in the decision's being passed along to the voters, who will decide in November.

Now, this article includes this statement:

"The ballot proposal would exempt casinos from a law that bans puffing cigarettes in all places of employment in South Dakota. South Dakota actually passed a "no smoking" law 6 years ago, but up until last year Casinos had been exempt."

THAT IS A LIE!!

The ballot proposal does exactly the opposite. A "yes" vote supports extending the restrictions on other workplaces to include the casinos. In essence, the voting is on whether or not to approve what the legislature passed and the governor signed.

To see for yourselves, google: SD"Referred Law 12"smoking

or, for a quick look, go here:

Now, is this an honest mistake or, given the tone of the entire article, is it a deliberate attempt to defraud by confusing a voting public consistently shown in polling to favor the extended ban by more than a 2-to-1 margin?

Cute. Someone has the grasp of concepts to call correcting extremely important misinformation in the article "spam".

Most people already know this fact, but it never hurts to make sure. Almost all drunks, degrenerates and lowlife roffraff are people who smoke cigarettes.

I sometimes wonder if there's even a person there. It sounds like a computer program that keeps repeating the same thing.

If there really is a "Just Candid" she is probably an ex-smoker who is just green with envy every time she sees someone light up. They have what she wants deep down inside.

I'm not a drunk, a degenerate or lowlife riff-raff and I smoke. I have a good job and I can even spell.

Glad to hear about your skill with spelling and sorry about my typo. Yes I do misspell words sometimes.
I never said you were a drunk, degenerate or riffraff nor that all smokers were.
Glad you have a good job and hope you get to keep it.
Understanding what is written goes a long way toward keeping a good job.
Do have a great day, but remember this. Smokers have a much higher chance of getting various cancers and/or COPD then non-smokers.

By the way, the people of SD voted along with the Legislature and ratified the law the governor had signed nearly two years earlier.

The regulation of public smoking in SD was extended to include bars, casinos, and video gaming parlors.

The character raising such a fuss in this article, who screamed and shouted and carried on claiming he was all about letting the people decide is now trying to sue the state claiming that exempting "cigar bars" somehow creates a privileged class and is therefore unconstitutional.

How much more of the citizens' money is he going to demand be squandered before he lets go and tries to figure out how to make his business attractive enough that people will come back inside after they step out to smoke?

You are correct. Have you guys started with the fast food and sugary drinks to stop obesity? Just a thought.

Yes. We have gotten sugugary drinks out of most public schools here in MD. Even big M has made a attempt to upgrade their food.

According to a report on *Rutters, smokers have lower IQs than non smokers. They also report the people who have been smoking longest have the lowest IQ.
There is much more to be found about. Just Google IQ and smokers.

Never smoked or used illegal drugs. Had twin sister who lost it on drugs. I saw how fast she becsme addicted and decided it might be genetic and was not for me. She's now lost to me and herself. I doubt if she ever gets rid of her addiction and seems to be on a one way trip. I often cry for her and wish I'd somehow been able or had the knowledge to help her befor she reached her present state. I tried the best I could but it was not good enough.
