Last night to smoke in Virginia

Tonight is the last night to smoke legally in most Virginia bars and restaurants before the ban takes effect tomorrow. A round-up of previous coverage:

— Tom Firey and I in The Washington Post arguing against the ban

– 75% of Virginia bars and restaurants are already smokefree; why smoking bans aren’t a reaction to market failure

– How the ban will wipe out Virginia’s hookah culture

    I thought people had a choice in this country. You can choose NOT to smoke. You can choose NOT to enter an establishment which is smoke free. You can choose NOT to work at an establishment with smoking. Why does the govt always have to try to save us from ourselves? They need to focus on things that matter right now!
