Not exactly sure of Mr. Greer’s qualifications as they relate to medical science or economics but his letter of 7/5/18 appears to be de facto proof that the original non-smoking petition was, in fact, flawed or illegal. The obtuse facts and figures regarding the cost and benefits of banning smoking in nearly all facilities would be fruitless to debate as I doubt there is any proven facts to support these numbers. Needless to say, if the next petition is “tighter”, I would expect the petition to be complete, published in full and list the sponsors and contributors so everyone can make an intelligent decision as to whether or not to sign the new petition.
