Michigan will go smokefree in May 2010

Great news from Michigan! The state legislature has voted to make workplaces, including restaurants and bars, smokefree in May 2010. Now all the governor needs to do is sign the bill.

The downside is the exemptions, which are for three Detroit casinos, cigar bars and tobacco stores.

It’s interesting to read the AP article; you’ll see people the same old tired arguments we heard in D.C. about government overreach, drinking and smoking going together, etc.

I think my favorite quote is from a woman who said she is find with smokers having to take it outside of restaurants and offices, but not bars. A bar, she said, is “the place you go to be a bad girl, bad boy.”

Okaaaaaayyyyyy ….
