Lafayette Councilman Kenneth Boudreaux hosted a lively meeting that turned controversial last night, dealing with a smoke free initiative to ban smoking in bars and night clubs.

Supporters and opponents squared off in this public forum over the possibility of new restrictions on whether one can light up or not. so far, Alexandria is the only city in the state where smoking has been banned in bars and gambling facilities. we talked with a couple people from the meeting about their views on smoking.

Even though Councilman Boudreaux hosted the forum, he is not currently proposing a ban on smoking in bars.

He says he's just gathering information on the issue from the public.
