Over the past few weeks I’ve attended several social events in my area (and one personal being my 30th birthday party). This lead to a lot of vaping in public places, including a restaurant. There are some do’s and don’ts to keep in mind when vaping in public places. Continue reading
I am not a “full-time” vaper. I usually puff on an e-cigarette just a couple of times throughout the week. Because I am not addicted to nicotine, and don’t want to ever go back on that route, I use e-cigarette cartomizers that don’t have any nicotine in them (0mg).
In less than two weeks from now, the Springfield Illinois Legislature will make a decision on bill HB 4012. If passed, it would allow some businesses to apply for smoking licenses that would allow their patrons to smoke in their establishments. Eligible establishments include bars, casinos, adult entertainment night clubs, and any establishment hosting a convention or exposition for selling cigars, pipes, tobacco and related smoking devices and accessories.
In order to take part, businesses would be required to apply for and get a license through a local liquor control commission. It would require the establishment to let all employees know that smoking is allowed on the premises, install an air filtration system, and post a sign in a prominent place notifying the public that it has been designated as a smoking establishment.
The bill would be an amendment to the Smoke Free Illinois Act. Smoking in all indoor public places was banned in Illinois beginning January 1, 2008. State Representative Anthony DeLuca has proposed the bill after introducing a similar one last year. That one passed the committee but never made it to the floor for debate.
