On Thursday's edition of The Chad Hasty Show on KFYO, Chad discussed his views on the proposed smoking ban ordinance in Lubbock. The West Texas Smoke Free Organization will be speaking tonight (Thursday, 08/14/14) at the Lubbock City Council meeting. The organization is asking the council to implement an amendment to close "loopholes"in the city ordinance.

Currently, business owners in Lubbock can allow smoking in their establishment after completing a permit process. If business owners choose to not allow smoking, they are free to do so.

Referring to the organization, Chad said, "They say it's to look out for people but it's really not. It is the arrogance of those on the left who believe that adults can not make their own decisions. And that adults are too stupid, too ignorant, to make their own decisions."

The Lubbock City Council will meet tonight, August 14, in the council chambers located at 1625 13th Street. The meeting's schedule and slated speakers are available at: http://www.ci.lubbock.tx.us/main-city-side-navigation/council-agendas
