Smoking Ban: Business BoonThe tobacco industry is spending a fortune trying to convince people that the proposed Maryland regulation to ban smoking in all Maryland workplaces, including restaurants and bars, would hurt the Maryland economy because smokers would run to nearby states to dine and drink.A rational look at the statistics, however, proves otherwise . . .The U.S. population is approximately 250 million people. The tobacco industry says the number of smokers is 50 million. I think this is an inflated figure but let's give the tobacco side the benefit of the doubt.
