I just got back from my local B&M here in Michigan, I 9we0 LOSE AGAIN. tHE NEW ANTI-SMOKING LAW IS BAD ENOUGH BUT IT GETSA WORSE, IN ORDER TO SERVE FOOD OR DRINKS AT A CIGAR EVENT the local B^M has to register as a cigar bar, so you can smoke cigars in the store BUT NOT PIPES! So now I guess I might as well get all my supplies online. Does anyone now a good state to live if your a pipe smoker?

There doesn't seem to be any states left for smokers anymore. Are you sure that they will not allow pipe smoking any longer?
I don't see what the type of smoke has to do with anything.

It doesn't have to make sense the "politicins" (should be a four letter word) wrote the law and we all know they DON'T THINK!

I was hoping you had made a mistake Frank, and that I would find something so you could refute this, but sadly, I end up feeling more like Alice in Wonderland.
Along with the original language of the law, there are two major exceptions. One exception is for cigar bars and tobacco specialty retail stores. Both businesses must file an affidavit with the department, and after approval, they are allowed to permit smoking of only cigars in the cigar bar, or in the retail store customers are allowed to smoke. The bill contains specific definitions of cigar bars or retail stores and the actions that must be taken in order to be considered one of either type of establishment. The second exception is for casinos. The bill states that casinos which have been established before the date that the bill takes place are permitted to allow smoking in the gaming area of the casino only. But, casinos established after May 1, 2010 are not allowed to permit smoking. A clause in this bill exempts casinos that are operating under the Indian gaming regulatory act.
