Michigan is the 38th state to take up a state wide smoking ban in restaurants. Not only will you not be allowed to smoke in restaurants, but any public place that employs people. This applies to places such as malls, concert halls, nursing homes and anyplace else that serves food or beverages or employs at least one person. For years, non-smokers have been complaining about the effects of second-hand smoke. Second-hand smoke has been proven to cause many diseases, including lung cancer and upper respiratory infections. Waiters and waitresses have been trying to get away from second-hand smoke as well as patrons.
Unfortunately, the best viable option is for the smoker to take a good look at their health and situation and try to quit smoking. Kicking the habit will afford many benefits to a person's health. Easier breathing, less colds and infections, and healthy lungs, to name a few. Over 5,000 Michiganians lose their life each year due to tobacco. Health care costs are soaring. Michigan's ban on smoking will help drive down these costs for non-smokers who previously were exposed to the second-hand smoke.

Detroit Real Estate Investment Myths - Don't Believe the Hype
Reason # 1 The Motor City
Maybe I'm a little bit biased since I come from Detroit, but I think that Detroit is a great reason to visit Michigan. Ignore, for a moment, the decrepit old houses and deteriorating neighborhoods, and think of the city's rich, vibrant culture and historical landmarks. Detroit is home to "The Big 3" and "Motown" after all. I don't care how much negative press you've heard about the city, don't tell me that you haven't driven a Big 3 car or been in love with a Motown song. The city's current decline is certainly no reason not to visit. Just be sure to keep your doors locked.(That was a joke, by the way).
Reason # 5 The Sports Teams
So, the Detroit Lions haven't done so well in the past few years. The Tigers almost made it to the World Series this year. The NBA is in the middle of a lockout, so we won't mention the Detroit Pistons. The Red Wings are probably the most consistent team we have, and although I don't follow hockey, it seems like they're winning the Stanley Cup every other year.
Plus, there are all of the college teams - the Big House (University of Michigan) is one of the most popular sporting venues in the country.
