Article in the New York Times -- Vegas Judge OKs Part of Smoking Ban, by the Associated Press:
Smoking in Sin City bars might get you a ticket from now on, but it won't get you thrown in jail, a judge ruled Thursday.
Clark County District Judge Douglas Herndon said he would allow a voter-approved smoking ban to take effect immediately, but he barred police from enforcing it. Health inspectors, however, will be able to issue $100 tickets, he decided.
The ban covers some bars and the areas around slot machines at supermarkets, gas stations and convenience stores.
