I'm not terribly interested or well read on the subject, anyway. I was just reading along, enjoying watching another AC meltdown, when all of a sudden: pop went the weasel.
In this case the business owners are the minority. The issue is arising in a place of business, the agency tasked with protecting worker health gives smoking a pass, and there is already a capitalistic mechanism in place offering consumers a choice in the matter. I see it as unnecessary legislation, and an example of the majority unfairly infringing upon the rights of the minority via popular vote.
