Strong smokefree law takes effect in Virgin Islands

J.B. Joel (LOC)Three cheers to the U.S. Virgin Islands, where a strong smokefree law took effect earlier this month.

The law covers not only bars and restaurants but areas within 20 feet of all outdoor public transportation stations and platform shelters. Hear that, Metro? It can be done.

The law also covers laundromats, schools, hotels, casinos, shopping centers and much more. It took effect on Feb. 10.
