Light 'em if you got 'em

By

A statewide smoking ban went into effect this year for all public and private buildings, with very few exceptions (like your own home).  However, a Summit County-wide ban went into effect a couple of years earlier - the limitations were somewhat different, but close.  One thing the State of Colorado did was to require that smokers do so outside, and at least 15 feet away from entrances.  That one provision, however, was left to local communities to modify if they so chose.  

So, Silverthorne, at a recent Council meeting, did just that.  The consensus was that 15 feet away from many businesses would put people in alleys or on roadways, and that was not acceptable.  So, now you are free to smoke in Silverthorne right outside the entrance.  Smoke 'em!

Ken, that ban went into effect earlier in Washington. What was happening a local tavern built a "lean to" out back with chairs, lights, fake palm trees, etc. Boy, let's make 'em comfortable! However, the city shut them down recently!

They really should be a little way away from the entrance - otherwise the concentrated smoke will just go in through the entrance.

In the "no smoking" sections I've always wondered how the smoke knows to stay there. ;-)

People entering a building should not have to pass through a cloud of toxic smoke. BAd call.
