A recent news story said a state legislator in Minot ND introduced a bill to bring back smoking in bars.
Obviously this is a horrible idea.
I hope most of the other representatives at the state level see this as well.
In case they don’t I used ChatGPT to help create a template letter that you can use to send to your state legislators
Dear [Representative’s Name],
I am writing to express my deep concern about the possibility of smoking being reintroduced in bars in North Dakota. As someone who cares deeply about the health and well-being of all North Dakota residents, I strongly urge you to vote against any legislation that would allow smoking in bars.
Allowing smoking in bars would put the health of bar employees and patrons at risk. Secondhand smoke is a known carcinogen and can cause serious health problems, including lung cancer and heart disease. Furthermore, reintroducing smoking in bars would be a step backward in our efforts to create a healthier and more livable state for all residents.
I understand that some may argue that allowing smoking in bars would be good for business, but I believe that the health and well-being of our residents should always be our top priority. I urge you to vote against any legislation that would reintroduce smoking in bars, and to instead work to create a healthier and more livable state for all North Dakota residents.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
