Here is a list from states across the U.S. which have banned smoking in all public places.
You can’t smoke in restaurants, airports, bars, or any public buildings within 10 feet of the door.
Some of the southern states, especially Florida and Alabama, which are warm for the majority of the year, will take longer to start these bans, because a lot of establishments are open-air, like restaurants and bars.
How are you supposed to make an open-roof bar smoke-free? What about restaurants on the beach?
I live in Florida and it will never go 100% smoke-free.
A lot of the establishments are all open-air, especially on the coast.
A big part of Florida’s economy relies on tourism, and a lot of that tourism in on the coastal sides of the state.
There are 1000’s of bars, restaurants, and hotels lined up and down the beach.
Not that you can smoke freely wherever you want, but a place like that going 100% seems like a tough law to pass.
