Columbus voters to decide smoking ban
Columbus voters will decide the city’s controversial smoking ban on November 2nd. Columbus City Council Wednesday afternoon put the issue on the ballot.

That’s because smoking ban opponents collected the roughly 5,000 signatures to force a vote.

Opponents of the ban did not attend the special council meeting. They argue the ban infringes on the rights of smokers and bar and restaurant owners and will cost business owners customers and money.
