Smoking Ban Tricky to Enforce
By Elana Gordon
Kansas City, MO – Kansas City, Missouri will go smoke free in a little more than a month. Voters narrowly passed the ban earlier this month. The city's current rules prohibit smoking before 9pm in restaurants with liquor licenses, but the new ban will prohibit it in restaurants and bars at all times. Several other cities in the region, including Independence, already have similar smoking bans in place. KCUR's Elana Gordon reports that the transition there took some getting used to.
