Grabber Posted March 10, 2009 Report Share Posted March 10, 2009 These new smoking laws seem to be spreading to alot of states. We have them in my home state of Washington and Oregon just passed it as well. No smoking in any restraunts or bars at all - total ban. When I was in High School we all referred to smoking as "Butt Weezing". The term has stuck with me. I have been lucky to of never of had the habit....so I appreciate the law !! :happy feet: Associated Press Published: March 9, 2009 Virginia Governor Tim Kaine signed a bill Monday that generally restricts smoking to separate rooms that have their own ventilation. It takes effect Dec. 1. Kaine had been working for years for a total ban on smoking in all restaurants, but compromised with lawmakers in the bill that passed last month. The measure also exempts private clubs and open-air outdoor areas of bars. The first substantial tobacco curb is remarkable, however, in a state that began growing tobacco at Jamestown 400 years ago and is home to Philip Morris and its Marlboro cigarette factory, the world’s largest. http://www.tricities.com/tri/news/local/ar...king_ban/21447/ Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
