Anti-smokers have an organized camapign

See the comment to yesterday's post. The anti-smoking forces have a 20-page campaign plan on how they intend to use the "law" to suppress the rights of property owners. It even says something along the lines of 'if they can't get their whole agenda, don't accept a partial step - it increases pressure.' Reminds me of prohibition - the temperance movement got their way and created big time organized crime. The drug war created big-time drug cartels and drug gang wars. Will tobacco prohibition create 'smoke-easies' and a new type of organized crime? Or will the existing gangs find an opening here?
