Interesting in today's Gazette - JAX was cited for not adhering to the no smoking law. Fine upstanding business - yes sir. Levecchia's don't have to obey the law, I guess. It's all about the booze, baby.

I just searched the Gaston Gazette website, and couldn't find any reference to this.
Please provide a link.

The article states that the Health Department has received complaints against those businesses, not that the businesses were found in violation by the Health Department.

Here's a link to the actual smoking ban law:

Someone could be standing right outside the door and blowing smoke inside under this law.

It doesn't bother me one way or the other, but there is this little tidbit in the law:

" 130A-498. Local governments may restrict smoking in public places"

That means that the city of Belmont could ban smoking on sidewalks or within 10 feet of doorways to public places.

On the one hand, the smoking ban seems pretty weak as compared to other states, but it appears that the NC legislature has set this up to be as loose or as strict as local governments want it to be.

The title of this thread which you created is very unfair.

If all you're basing it on was the Gazette article, then it's a fair title.

But read the law in it's entirety as Malcolm III did, and yeah - it's an unfair title.

If violating the law means having crappy service and garbage food then they are 100% guilty! put 'em away and give the key to Johnny B's to take over.
