North Carolina’s Smoke-Free Restaurants and Bars Law

North Carolina’s Smoke-Free Restaurants and Bars Law goes into effect on January 2, 2010. Restaurant and bar patrons won’t be allowed to light up in enclosed places, starting on the 2nd of January.  The law also applies to enclosed areas of most hotels and motels.  The law requires affected businesses to have signs posted.  If you have any question about where you may or may not smoke in any North Carolina business, check with the management.

Will this new law have any impact on bar business?  Will it result a reduction in smokers quitting the habit?  Let us know what you’re thinking!
