St. Louis County Smoking Ban Passes


In yesterday's election, St. Louis County voters overwhelmingly passed a smoking ban. What this means:

*Casinos in the city and county are exempt from the ban.
*As that Daily RFT link above puts it, "bars that earn 75 percent of their revenue from liquor sales" in the county can still allow smoking. 

All of this goes into effect on January 1, 2011.

So, wow -- most major venues in town will now be smoke-free, right?
