Letter to the Editor: Smoking ban violation of rights

By DAVID HOLCBERG

Editor:

A smoking ban in private clubs and bars in Utah would be a blatant violation of property rights (as are such bans in other cities and states).

Business owners have the right to determine whether they want to offer their customers a smoke-free environment.

No one is forced to patronize a bar, club or restaurant that allows smoking. If some people don't want to put up with cigarette smoke, they are free to stay away. They are also free to open their own non-smoking bars and clubs.

They have no right, however, to force business owners to adopt a non-smoking policy.
