So, it has been about a year since Ohio's smoking ban went into effect. Some restaurant and bar owners are still complaining about the ban's negative impact on business. If you talk to public health officials, however, they say the economic impact of a healthier workforce make the ban a major victory. The smoking ban's success is up for debate on the Sound of Ideas, and we'll talk about just how far public health legislation might go...Twinkie tax, anyone? Join us, Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock.
