Should smoking in front of the entrances of businesses be illegal in Lodi? Should exceptions be made for wine tasting rooms, bars and restaurants? How would such regulations be enforced?

These issues and others will be discussed with the public in the coming weeks as the Lodi City Council looks to adopt a smoking ordinance that could limit where people are allowed to smoke in public.

    I do not smoke. I don’t think there should be a law preventing smoking. There should be areas for people to smoke.
    I do observe that a lot of businesses that have areas for smokers, have them in areas that infringe on the rights of those do not smoke. At least put up an ash can and sign for the smokers so that it does not cross the path way to an entrance.

    Ms. Mounce and Mr. Nakanishi are the only two self thinkers on this present council and facing this issue with reality and not more authoritative bullying like the other three talking heads.
