Smoking in New Jersey bars and restaurants could soon be banned
Smoking in New Jersey bars and restaurants could soon be banned. Trenton legislators are set to consider the issue next week.
Many supporters of the ban are obtaining strong data to boost their argument. A recent study states sitting in a car inhaling exhaust fumes will not harm someone as much as sitting in a smoke-filled bar.
According to the American Cancer Society, 65,000 Americans pass away each year from second-hand smoke. Studies have also shown that working in an environment where there is smoke can be dangerous.
Some states along the East Coast already have smoking bans in place.
