Smoking

  • As of 2017, a little more than half the eastern states had enforced state-wide bans on smoking in restaurants, bars and workplaces, with many municipalities enforcing controls in other states and/or in more specific ways (public areas, schools, etc).
  • Texas, Tennessee and Florida still have liberal attitudes towards smoking: cigarettes are inexpensive and smoking in bars and restaurants is still permitted, although sometimes, smoking areas are separated.
  • For the full list of exactly where smoking in public places is permitted, refer to the Americans for Non-smoker's Rights (ANR) website (www.no-smoke.org).
