Let me say that most smoking bans are a result of DIRECT votes of the electorate, or THOSE PEOPLE THEY ELECTED TO SERVE THEM.
Now you get to tell us which smoking bans are by decree.
Here are your list of statewide bans: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin.
I wonít spend the time to research every state on your list. But, I will go for the first.
The Arizona legislature created the ban, it wasnít a vote by the populace.
