New Orleans Passes Smoking Ban

The New Orleans City Council has passed a sweeping ban against smoking in most places across the city.

The vote was unanimous.

New Orleans will go Smoke free in 90 Days.

Council members Jared Brossett and Nadine Ramsey expressed concern about not having enough information on what the economic impact of this ban would be, but ultimately decided to support it.

Councilman James Gray broke down at one point as he listed the names of friends and relatives who had died from lung cancer caused by smoking.
