Greenville SC holds off on OUTDOOR and cigar shop ban.

My question is, to the lady at the end, WTF is your three-year-old doing in a cigar shop??????? Jaysus.

GREENVILLE, S.C. --
Monday night, the Greenville city council decided to hold off on moving forward with plans to amend its smoking ordinance that would have added to its rules*and enforcement.

The reason, said the Mayor--the wording of the changes is too confusing, and needs to be reworked, so businesses and city leaders are on the same page.

Had the changes been voted on, smokers might have had*fewer places to light up in the city.

The current ban, passed back in 2006, has worked well according to some city council members.**They say the changes are simply to close some loopholes that remain in the current ordinance.

The proposed changes would expand the ban to public parks where there are playgrounds, cigar bars and tobacco stores, and all outdoor decks or patios.*
