Get the Word out to prevent such silly Draconian nonsense at private businesses.

Or just lay down as supposed do gooders take away your rights in the "interest" of public health.

Commission Board Postpones Vote on Tobacco Limits

Vote PostponedBOSTON - The Boston Public Health Commission board will postpone until December a decision on proposed regulations to limit the sale of tobacco products and reduce workplace exposure to secondhand smoke.

The board had been scheduled to give final consideration to the rule changes Thursday, Nov. 13, but decided to take more time to review transcripts from two public hearings held in October and written comments submitted during a 60-day public comment period that ended Nov. 3.

The vote is now scheduled for the board’s next regular meeting, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 11, at the Public Health Commission’s offices, 1010 Massachusetts Avenue, on the second floor, in the Hayes conference room.
