A bill that would ban smoking in workplaces in the largest tobacco-growing state was approved Tuesday by the NC House Health committee. The next step for the bill is a House Legal Issues committee.
There are clearly two sides to this debate. Some see it as a health issue, others as government intrusion.
So what do you think state lawmakers should do? Should they ban smoking in workplaces, including bars and restaurants? Or do you think lawmakers should allow those places to decide for themselves to permit a legal, but dangerous and potentially deadly activity, to take place in their establishments?
