(Manhattan, KS)--Aggieville businesses are pondering how a proposed smoking ban would affect their cash flow if it goes into effect after next week's election.

Some say that it would be a wash for places that serve food -- food sales would go up, bar sales would drop, and it would even out.

But bars that do not serve food could see a drop in business -- which would not make them happy.

Smokers and non-smokers are also going back and forth on the issue. Smokers say they feel unfairly targeted, while non-smokers say it would be nice to not smell smoke (or smell like smoke) while going out.
