Just because we don’t see people smoking in public or at work, it doesn’t mean people stopped smoking. Like states before and after it, Ohio enacted a state smoking ban in November of 2007 that prohibited smoking in public places, as well as businesses.
So instead of smoking in these places, smokers smoke at home and in there cars. You can see it for yourself. When you’re stopped in traffic – and notice the drivers around you. Also, the he next time you’re at the grocery store look at the parking lot and take note of the cigarette butts on the ground.
