Smoking ban falls just short
Placeholder Image
I have long supported a smoking ban, but I'm very disappointed that the proposed ban does not go into effect until July 1, 2010. Bar owners knew this was coming, so they have no excuse that they need time to prepare. This ban must go into effect on July 1, 2009.Also, it must include the requirement that smokers must not block entrances and exits.
