City Smoking Ordinance

I think its finally going to hit Mobile. One of our state senators
has presented bills each session & they have not passed. Although
cities throughout Alabama have legislated there own bills & passed
them. At this point I no longer care, since the bars & eateries
have made there own decision not to allow smoking. It should be
there decision to make & not be forced IMHO. For the most part,
the few places that allowed smoking were for cigarettes only, and
that has been probably for the last 4-5 yrs.

A pizza joint in the next town over had a sign on their front door that said "no cigar smoking" before the state smoking in public ban. I refused to eat there because of that and a couple other reasons.

It hit Birmingham and I hate to say it but it is pretty cool to play music in non smoking clubs. Although I disagree with the ordinance 100% and it has hurt some clubs business although the clubs think it will pick back up. The rule is you can only smoke in the establishment if 80% of the sales is tobacco....Which only leaves cigar shops.

It is totally opposite of the free enterprise idea IMHO

Good for Mobile

As to eateries that allow cigarettes and not cigars. I'm fine with that. Cigars put out a lot more smoke then a cigarette. I understand why they would restrict cigar smoke.

The problem is, there are no places that allow cigar smoking. Except
for outside if they have a patio. The closest indoor smoking area
would be the casino's in Biloxi. I would not be surprised if they
eventually said cigars are no longer allowed.
