Finally, A Smoking Ban… Sort Of

The legislature has at long last stepped up to the plate and passed a smoking ban in Tennessee, and the governor has said he will sign it. So what’s the problem? Unfortunately, though restaurants are included, bars aren’t covered by the new regulations. I’m still waiting for the day when I can go bar-hopping and not come home smelling like an ashtray. No one in other cities around the country with a full ban seems to have a problem stepping outside for a cigarette.

Oh well – it’s a start.

    I’m really excited about this. I’m new to Nashville and see this as a really progressive move for the state. There’s no reason why people can’t step out for a smoke. People do it in WAY colder cities than Nashville.

    If it helps one person quit it’s worth it too.
