When residents of Helena, Mont. voted to ban smoking in bars, restaurants and casinos, an amazing thing seemed to happen. Over the course of six months, according to a recent study, local heart attack rates were cut in half. But not everyone in town was convinced of the study's findings or happy about the ban.
