Michigan Not Negatively Impacted By Going Smoke Free

In December, the Michigan Department of Treasury released a report, The Early Impact of Michigan's Smoking Ban, finding that the statewide smoke free air law has not made an impact on the states restaurant and bar industry. This study mirrors the many other reports from cities and states around that nation that have also found that going smoke free does not hurt bar and restaurant business and in some cases can actually increase sales.

Hopefully the state legislature will use this new data as reasoning to pass a statewide smoke free air law that covers all businesses including bars.
