Hannibal voters approve smoking ban
Wednesday, April 4, 2012
HANNIBAL, Mo. (AP) — Another Missouri town is about to go smoke-free.
Voters in Hannibal on Tuesday approved an indoor smoking ban that had been the subject of heated debate among city council members over the past several months. The Quincy Herald-Whig (http://bit.ly/Hg5SyK ) reports that the measure passed with 56 percent approval.
The law bans smoking in all indoor public places and in city-owned vehicles.
More than two dozen Missouri communities have enacted smoking bans in recent years, including St. Louis city and county and Kansas City.
