Smokings Bans To Take Effect Next Week

Two Franklin County cities, Columbus and Dublin, both have smoking bans or indoor clean air acts taking effect next week. I believe it's January 31st for Columbus and February 1st for Dublin. There may be others as well. Information on the Columbus act can be found here. Dublin information can be found here. The Dublin site also provides a PDF of the official no smoking sign that lists a phone number to report violations. Should be interesting times in both cities. It's just too bad that the ostriches on the Dublin City Council decided to wait until after Columbus' referendum on the issue in November before taking any action. It wasn't enough that cigarettes=eventual slow death, they had to make sure the city wouldn't lose a few of the smokers' dollars to Columbus before enacting a sensible piece of legislation.
