Cigar Fest gets smoking ban waiver

http://www.ketv. com/news/ 22552001/ detail.html

LINCOLN, Neb. --

Patrons at a dance hall in Lincoln were allowed to smoke for a short time on Friday evening, despite a statewide smoking ban.

For five hours, patrons at the Pla-Mor Ballroom were allowed to smoke cigars indoors. Organizers of Cigar Fest got a temporary waiver from the Department of Health and Human Services to skirt the ban under the Clean Indoor Air Act.

Owners have the right to use or permit a legal product on 'private' property'

Does the owners have the intelligence to handle this smoking issue without the interference from Council or any other special interest groups??

Fear drives Bans, Ignorance and misinformation passes them.

Ban Dihydrogen Monoxide! This one substance kills more people every year than any other but it will never be Banned. It sickens over 4 billion and kills over 2 million every year.

This is meant to show how we are led to institute Bans which are intended to mislead people for the sole purpose of profit.
Note; Fear is the driving force behind Bans of anykind.
