Another Reason to Go Smoke Free

As if we need yet another reason why Indianapolis should go smoke free, but just in case you do here is one:

Last week the city of Houston released results of a study that analyzed the impact its comprehensive smoke free air law had on its bars and restaurants two-years after the law went to effect. The study found that there was no economic impact on its either bars or restaurants, revenues remained stable. Houston now joins the many other cities that have not experienced a negative economic impact by going smoke free; Plainfiled, IN, New York City, Boston, Lexington, KY, the state of California, the state of Minnesota along with many others.

Houston, TX is twice the size of Indianapolis, so if they can go smoke free and experienced no economic impact, don't you think it would be the same in Indianapolis?
