A.P. Lane (12/11, Letters) says business owners should get to decide whether to allow smoking.
I have this analogy. Asbestos in ceiling tile is known to cause cancer, right? As a business owner, should I have the right to put asbestos-laden ceiling tile in my establishment since perhaps it’s cost effective and the perfect texture? It’s my business, and I’m the property owner, correct?
Oh, that’s right — it’s been proved to be carcinogenic and, in fact, would create a health issue for my employees and customers alike.
Thus, I’m not allowed to do this by law.
