ell0 guys..as we kn0w,sm0ke can affect in many aspect especially health. But,its als0 can disturb 0ur p0liticcal in 0ur c0untry??lets discuus ab0ut that.. :)
Am0ng businesses, c0mprehensive smoking bans tilt the ec0n0mic playing field in ways that are fundamental t0 the political economy 0f the issue. Establishments that cater to a largely sm0king clientele are likely to be opp0sed to a ban, and those who explicitly cater to anonsmoking customer base might be driven t0 oppose its t0 pr0tect 0wn market niche.Businesses in communities that have a relatively high prop0rtion of smokers relative to nonsmokers will be opp0sed to regi0nal smoking bans, as will businesses and municipalities bordering communities that have not ad0pted a smoking ban. Many establishments that would be largely unaffected might be inclined t0 stay on the sidelines 0f the debate.
These p0litical compr0mises arise in response to the econ0mic pressures that drive particular businesses to actively opp0se smoking ban ordinances. Those who are m0st threatened by any public policy proposal tend to be m0re adamant in their opp0sition and are more likely to have their interests accomm0dated in final legislation. The prevalence of such exemptions in existing sm0king ordinances reflects underlying economic pressures and pr0vides indirect evidence of the potential adverse effects of more comprehensive sm0king ban proposals. In fact, the resources that businesses expend on their opposition to sm0king bans, and their lobbying efforts to obtain exemptions, represent direct costs of smoking ban prop0. sals,whether or not they are ultimately implemented. S0,its can make 0ur g0verment difficult t0 admin a0r c0untry..am I right frenz?? =)-Posted by Azlinawati
