It’s been one month since a smoking ban in bars and restaurants took affect in Michigan. So far, it seems smokers are getting used to the new rules. Most of the people FOX spoke to love the change.
They say it’s nice not eat when people are smoking and to go home not smelling like smoke. Some area businesses even reported a boost in business.
The State Department of Community Health has yet to receive a single complaint or file any violations. County Health Departments haven’t seen any either.
Violations can lead to fines of $100 for first time offenders and up to $500 for additional offenses.
Smoking is banned in all public workplaces and any business where food or drink is served. Detroit casinos, cigar bars and other tobacco specialty shops are exempt from the ban.
