North Carolina Bans Smoking In Bars, Restaurants

DURHAM, N.C. — In dozens of states, Gary Richards wouldn't have been able to light up a Marlboro before tucking into his meat-lover's pizza, as he did at Satisfaction Restaurant & Bar this week. But in North Carolina, the nation's leading tobacco producer, limits on indoor smoking have lagged behind those in much of the country.

That changes Saturday, when smoking in restaurants and bars is banned in the state that is home to two major tobacco companies and where the golden leaf helped build Duke and Wake Forest universities.

This one amazes me Catherine. We have had people suing the government in New York for years now, but then, we don't grow tobacco. Dairy cows. That is our favorite, but our dairies are in trouble.

I hope next year we will still be able to have dairy cows and that they will again make a profit.
