There was a lot of hyperventilating in Dallas when they enacted a ban. The bar owners were saying it was going to kill their businesses.
They followed up between 6-12 months later, all of the bar owners that were bitching before loved it. All of them said they were selling more drinks because people were subbing more drinks for going outside to smoke.
