Many small working class neighborhood "adult only" bars are forced to ignore the currently existing bans to stay in business. Johnson and Johnson, the makers of Chantix and Nicoderm, is now finding it necessary to give new money to it's many tax exempt political action committees (PACs) to hire even MORE lobbyists for more enforcement measures. If more enforcement is needed, they themselves admit that the statement that bans are good for business is obviously another myth. There's even a hint that THEY, the originators of the ban frenzy, might be considering amending their many bans. Many are wondering how much more oppression people will stand for.
