D.C. Allows Smoking

Submitted by Rob on March 9, 2010 – 12:00 amNo Comment

WASHINGTON (AP) – For some, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day isn’t the same without chomping on a cigar. That’s why one city lawmaker is pushing for an exception to the District of Columbia’s smoke-free laws for two events.

Councilman Jack Evans proposed an exception for the Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick and another organization, Fight for Children, that hosts an annual boxing fundraiser.

Evans was able to convince the council to pass a one-year waiver and is now hoping to make the exception permanent. Evans says the emergency measure is for two nights a year and workers can opt out of working the events.

Angela Bradbery, co-founder of Smokefree DC, urged the mayor to veto the bill she says would force workers to choose between their health and a paycheck.
