Smoking Ban Update

Everyone's favorite topic it seems. I'll say it again, I can't wait until this is in affect, even if only for selfish reasons.

It looks like the ban should be in affect by the end of April, and enforcement will begin then. It appears the rules will have a 'loophole' to accommodate private clubs (think Knights of Columbus and the like). It didn't have details, so I wonder if you are going to have to be a registered Fraternal Organization or anything like that... if not, I think you are going to see a lot of new 'private' clubs where all the employees will be given a very minor stake in the company in order to get around the ban. Hope not... we'll have to wait and see what the rules look like.

Here is the update from CityBeat.

Hey how long has drinking and driving been illegal? 30 or so years?
Seems like we really pick and choose which laws we enforce. I think the cops should give everyone pulling out of a parking lot a breathalyser test.
Don't want to get broadsided and killed by a drunk who smells like cigarette smoke.
I'm curious as to why you care what people do in a private club. No one's forcing you to join.
I'd really like to see the breathalyser test incorporated (maybe as an option) into our cars. It would make me feel a lot better on those few occasions where people's better judgement elludes them (mine included). As for the smoking, I smoke, and I think the ban is a pain and wish that restaurants/bars/establishments could decide for themselves, I'll admit to enjoying the 'cleaner' air.
