CNN reports today that (emphasis added)

Cuba banned smoking in public places on Monday, as the government of the country known for its famous cigars acknowledged the health risk of tobacco. Smoking will be banned in restaurants, except in designated smoking areas, and cigarette machines also will be removed. The law will also suspend sales of cigarettes to children under age 16 and at stores less than 100 yards from schools.

Yes, not even Cuba is willing to ban smoking completely from restaurants and bars, but the Mecklenburg Co. commissioners want to. I can hear the objections now, Wull, Cuber’s a tobacco state! And North Carolina isn’t?
