Depends on where you live in the state. Some counties have banned it and some have not done anything. For example, Greenville county voted to have it banned in the city and in all city restaurants, bars, etc. A judge in city court last week said that it was not 'law' and that the city could not enforce it. The bars and restaurants went back to having smoking areas again. Some have decided to become smoke free by their own choice. From what I last heard, Gov. Sanford is going to try and make it a state law and ban it. He was very interested in the Greenville case last week. They had him on the local news saying the state needs to get involved. I don't know how far that will go. He's just talking now... You'll have to watch our newspapers and keep updated on the situation. He vowed to do something by '08. We'll have to see.
