Hey everyone im JR from Albuquerque NM where we have very severe smoking bans, pretty much the only place you can smoke here is at a hookah bar. I am also a gun owner. This forum seems to be a great resource for information and it will be great to hear from you all.

Hi JR and most welcome. Who forced your bans on you, a local city council or a board of health or is yours statewide?

Hiya JR. Here in the UK Hookah bars were NOT exempt from the smoking ban and practically all of them were put out of business at the stroke of a pen.

The city council enacted the first smoking ban but a statewide ban was signed by the governor this last march for all restaurants, bars, stores, almost any public place.

No JR, they would never do that. The UK government gets £9.8 Billion from tobacco tax. They earn too much money from us to do that.
