Minneapolis to Mull Tobacco Shop Smoking
- November 11, 2010 |
Lawmakers in Minneapolis have been asked to consider a proposal that would, if passed, prohibit customers from smoking in any of the city's tobacco shops.
According to a Fox9.com report, the amendment proposal is meant to close a legal loophole and combat businesses that are applying for tobacco-only licenses but are not necessarily cigar retailers; city licensing manager Grant Wilson told Fox 9 this type of action goes against the spirit of Minnesota's Clean Indoor Air Act.
The Cigar Rights of America has called upon its members to sign a petition that fights the proposal, and there will be a hearing on the proposed ordinance on November 29.
