Despite all of the evidence that smoking is bad for the unborn child, mothers continue to smoke. That is why we need more laws against smoking.

Air quality test results by Johns Hopkins
Town can't ban smoking, attorney says

The attorney's claim actually has more validity than you know:

Air quality test results by Johns Hopkins University, the American Cancer Society, a Minnesota Environmental Health Department, and various researchers whose testing and report was peer reviewed and published in the esteemed British Medical Journal......prove that secondhand smoke is 2.6 - 25,000 times SAFER than occupational (OSHA) workplace regulations:

All nullify the argument that secondhand smoke is a workplace health hazard.
Especially since federal OSHA regulations trump, or pre-empt, state smoking ban laws which are not based on scientific air quality test results.

US Supreme court decision 1992 NEVER OVERTURNED...

A U.S. Supreme court decision during the early 1970's ((Lloyd Corp v. Tanner, 407 U.S. 551 (1992)) said a place of business does not become public property because the public is invited in.

So, by that same reasoning. A restaurant or bar is not public property. We need to support small business and stop regulating them out of business.

According to a study recently published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, over the last 30 years, first-trimester use of prescription medication increased by more than 60%, and use of four or more medications more than tripled.

Most troubling, the study found that 80% of all pregnant women in the U.S. reported taking at least one prescription or over-the-counter medication during the first trimester, when the unborn child is most at risk for birth defects.
