Michigan’s new no smoking law takes effect tomorrow, May 1.

The law bans smoking in restaurants, bars, or workplaces with more than 1 employee.

I know that a lot of smokers are upset about the loss of “freedom”, but frankly, I believe that my freedom to breathe clean air outweighs their freedom to pollute that air with second-hand smoke.

I suspect that many bar owners will be pleasantly surprised to find that they gain new clientele who would never subject themselves to the smoke-filled atmosphere of most bars.

Personally, I’m happy about this new law.
