St. Peters weighs smokeless tobacco ban

ST. PETERS, Mo. (AP) -- Smoking has long been banned at city buildings in the St. Louis suburb of St. Peters. Smokeless tobacco could be next.

Calling it unsanitary and just downright unpleasant, city officials are tired of tobacco spit on city property. St. Peters aldermen may consider a smokeless tobacco ban at city buildings.

Mayor Len Pagano says the idea came to him after he watched a man spit tobacco juice on the sidewalk in front of City Hall.
