Shreveport, La. Delays Smoking Ban Implementation by One Year for Casinos

Null

In mid-June, the Shreveport City Council passed a ban on smoking and vaping in city parks as well as bars and most businesses, including casinos, with an implementation date set for early August. On Tuesday, however, the council voted to delay its implementation by a year, but only specific areas for casinos.

With the amendment to the ordinance, the smoking ban will not go into effect for the gaming areas of casinos until Aug. 1, 2021, while other businesses and city parks, as well as non-gaming areas of casinos, will see the ban go into effect on Aug. 8, 2020.

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.
