Newly elected city commissioners will have to take up some tough issues once in office. One of them is a possible city wide smoking ban for Bowling Green.
The American Lung Association says secondhand smoke causes approximately 70,000 heart disease and lung cancer deaths combined in the United States each year. But, some candidates running for Bowling Green City Commission argue it isn't the government's place to tell private citizens how to run their businesses.
WBKO asked each of the candidates, if elected, if they would support a city wide smoking ban. We sat down with them to hear their opinions on this controversial issue.
