That was something I hadn't thought about before moving to NC last year.
I know what you mean. I'm a non-smoker myself. Allergic to smoke.

But you have to remember, the economy of this state was built on tobacco. And it is going to take longer here than most places to totally ban tobacco smoking. There is a program helping the tobacco farmers to convert their fields over to other crops: Agricultural Policy Analysis Center - The University of Tennessee - Tobacco Quota Buyout

That's one reason I took pictures of a tobacco field a couple of weekends ago. I suspect they are going the way of the dodo bird. Tobacco Field in Pender Liz

Nothing unusual going on in North Carolina. Apparently, not many states prohibit restaurant smoking on a statewide basis. The number will continue to increase as time goes by, but currently those states are in the minority.

29 out of 50 ban restaurant smoking. (you have to add the red, white and yellow together). Liz

It's hard to get a handle on the actual number because of the various exceptions to the ban and current legal changes. Although Georgia, Oregon, Colorado, New Jersey and Louisiana have statewide bans, some public eating establishments within those states are exempt. The National Restaurant Association indicates 20 states have bans without exception.

Which one do you think will be the last state standing, IN, KY, MS, NC, NM, SC, TN, TX, WV, or WY? My guess is that it will not be NC.

I live in Eastern Carolina and it's only certain areas. School grounds, government buildings, some hospital grounds and some restaurants and malls restrict smoking in their building's or on their land but I don't think an over-all ban will ever occur most of everything was built with tobacco money or on tobacco land so I dunno although most of the restaurants, hospitals are done by the private owners not the government...

Is there a law banning adults to smoke in the homes where children resides? I think California has that law. I know someone in NC that does not respect or care and continues to smoke in the same home-dwelling as her stepchildren.

That is a pretty Fed up thing to do. She needs a slap to the face. But no, no law exist, and hopefully it never happens.
