New Hampshire Could Ban Smoking in Private Clubs

In a move that would take government regulations into once protected spaces, a trio of New Hampshire legislators have started the process that could ban smoking in private clubs, such as American Legions and fraternal lodges.

Senators Lou D’Allesandro and Donna Soucy and Representative Donald LeBrun have endorsed Legislative Service Request 2630, which would prohibit smoking in buildings owned or operated by social, fraternal or religious organizations. Currently, such organizations are allowed to set such policies on their own as decided on by their membership.

In New Hampshire, LSRs are the first step to getting bills created and introduced to the state legislature. The New Hampshire legislature will begin their 2014 session on January 8.

About the author

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 the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
