You can/cannot/maybe can smoke in Ohio

For those of you who are currently under a lot of stress smoking maybe your release valve, for others it is another point of stress; regardless of which side you take Ohio has passed a new smoking law.

This posted page by the ODH (the Ohio department of Health) has links to the text of new law and an FAQ (frequently asked questions).

However, the ODH has “agreed that no citations, warning letters or civil fines would be imposed upon ‘any business, organization, proprietor, employer, employee or individual’ until rules are drafted, which must be done no later than June” (see this Columbus Dispatch article from Friday, December 08, 2006 for more information).
