With very few exceptions smoking bans don’t prevent people from smoking in their own homes or cars. They simply limit the exposure of innocent people to second-hand smoke, especially in the workplace and other public areas. glass jars

July 21, 2006, banned in almost all workplaces in Arkansas. Exceptions include establishments that do not allow patrons younger than 21; retail tobacco stores; long-term care facilities including nursing homes; gaming floors of operations regulated by the Arkansas Racing Commission; designated hotel smoking rooms; and workplaces with fewer than three employees. language translation service
