Intro:

LAFAYETTE — A city-parish program to publicly commend bars that go smoke- free has attracted no interest, prompting the councilman who proposed it to consider “town hall” meetings on the issue.

“Basically, what I was doing was using it as an assessment tool,” Boudreaux said of the recognition. “I’m one who believes that businesses should have the opportunity to take action on their own, but none have stepped forward.”

DeFILIPPO: Give me a break: Nonsmokers need work breaks too 

Jump to full article: The Ohio State Lantern, 2012-04-08
Author: By Emma DeFilippo

Intro:

If I cannot have a nonsmoking break in the workplace, then please discontinue the permission of short breaks for smokers.

According to the American Lung Association, smoking costs Ohio’s economy $9.2 billion per year. Maybe, Ohio, if you prohibit smoke breaks in the workplace, that would motivate smokers to quit smoking and lower the economic burden. You have improved the health of your nonsmoking Ohioans, so either show the same kindness to the smoking Ohioans or give me a break.
