Smokers in Adrian, Mich. will soon have fewer places to light up, as the city commission passed a smoking ban at its meeting earlier this week.

The new ban will include city parks and areas within 20 feet of the doorways, windows or ventilation systems to all city buildings, though both areas must have posted signs indicating the ban. Also included in the ban are city hall, the city library.

The ban passed by a 5-1 vote, according to a report from Violators can be subject to a fine of up to $50.

Adrian is located in southern Michigan, approximately 72 miles southwest of Detroit. It is home to roughly 21,000 residents.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
