Warm June night, Arcadia Festival Place is rocking with a great band at GreekFest, beer in one hand, but don't even think about lighting up a cigarette, or cigar in the other hand.
When the Smoking ban becomes law in May, you no longer are allowed to smoke where any food or alcoholic beverage is served. No matter if that place is indoors or outdoors.
Being an ex-smoker I can't stand the smell of smoke anymore, and haven't touched a cigarette in 13 years. That said I respect the rights of smokers to engage in lighting up a cigarette, especially at an outdoor venue.
Now if you light up it is a $100 fine for you and whoever is listed on the liquor license for a first offense. The third offense could close the festival!
The question to me is how and if this law is enforced. When someone does light up, and they will. Someone will complain and at that point it puts public safety in a interesting position of being the "smoking police".
