Rep. Timothy Bledsoe (D) do you have some scientific training or scientific evidence that would support you politically-motivated assertion?  I would guess not, given the EPA, OSHA, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association and many other groups that have been investigating the issue of second-hand smoke do not, you are just blowing smoke.  Focus on the REAL issue, like JOBS for the unemployed in the State.
