After years of bickering and posturing, Michigan has finally passed a workplace smoking ban.
The mitten state will join New York City and the growing ranks of states that prohibit smoking in workplaces, bars and restaurants.
This is great news for most Michiganders, as it means that going to a bar or restaurant won’t leave you and your clothes reeking of smoke anymore. Of course, drycleaners should probably be worried. Their lucrative secondhand-stink business is sure to plummet.
Oh, and a note to smelly Europeans and dance club regulars: starting wearing more deodorant. You can’t count on cigarette smoke in the club to mask your BO anymore.
