íNo fumar en Gwinnett!
Gwinnett approves smoking ban

By DOUG NURSE
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

By a 4-0 vote, the Gwinnett County Commission Tuesday approved the most restrictive smoking ban in metro Atlanta.

The Gwinnett ordinance covers virtually all buildings, public and private, except for smoke shops, private residences and designated smoking rooms in motels or inns. The law will go into effect in 60 to 90 days. The Gwinnett law makes no exemptions for restaurants or bars. It would not apply to cities in the county.

Any person who violates the ordinance would be fined $50 for the first violation, $75 for a second and $100 for each subsequent violation within one year.

Gwinnett joins the ranks of other governments in Georgia that have lit the no-smoking sign, such as DeKalb and Fulton counties and the cities of Grayson, Loganville and Albany.

In addition, about a dozen Georgia cities are contemplating various smoking bans, said American Cancer Society spokesman Andy Lord.

A year ago, DeKalb commissioners banned smoking in restaurants, office buildings and all county offices. It exempted bars. The law, which has no jurisdiction in DeKalb's nine cities, became effective in February.

In 1993, Fulton County prohibited smoking in most workplaces but not in restaurants, which are required to set aside at least 50 percent of seating as nonsmoking.
