Dave Leonard (11/23, Letters) says to limit or ban smoking at the Kansas Speedway and the bars and restaurants in the metropolitan area is “stupid” and smoking bans are not good for business or the tax base.
People who smoke have a choice to smoke or not smoke. Nonsmokers have this choice taken away when they have to inhale unhealthy secondhand smoke.
Keep in mind there was a law passed in Kansas City by a majority to ban smoking in public places. Doesn’t a democratic decision still count?
This is a health issue more than a business issue.
