Well, California is already a non-smoking city. You really can't smoke anywhere you haven't paid for (except outside obviously) and I have yet to hear about a place going out of business because of the law.

If anything, they probably have MORE business now because you know how health-conscious Los Angelenos are and restaurants they may not have patronized previously because of the smoking issue are now on the list of possibilities.

Anyway, I went to a club where Saul Williams was spinning and had to leave because people were smoking all up in that joint, so apparently there are ways to get around it.

[quote="Kalibane"]Well I don't think restaurants would suffer as much as bars/night clubs would... and with restaurants it's mainly princple and a precedent that I take issue with. Bars I would think would lose a fair amount of business though. The bottomline is if you are outside smoking then you aren't inside drinking and that is where they make their money. A lot of times the door, or a portion of it, is going to a promoter (if there is a cover). It's hard to run a successful bar/club to begin with... but when you start forcing things on them that can put a damper on profits... it can turn a lot of break even clubs into bankrupt ones.[/quote]

Naylon has been embroiled in the smoking ban debate since the beginning. He said he followed the law for eight months, and lost about $10,000 a month because of the ban.
