May 1st marks the beginning of the new law banning smoking in Michigan bars, restaurants and most workplaces. Govenor Jennifer Granholm signed this bill into law earlier this year, making Michigan the 38th State to ban smoking in public spaces.


Businesses are required to post No Smoking signs and eliminate ashtrays.

Violations of the new ban will be based on complaints and enforced by the Health Department.
