  1. Its value is deontological says:

    The reason the ban works is it gives “the force of law” to people who complain about other people’s smoking. Even if you’re not fined, the nag who pesters the bartender to kick you out has the force of law on his side. All the law is doing is adding marginal value to a weak moral argument.
