Kirkwood smoking ban in effect Saturday

KMOV - There's one day left until a smoking ban in Kirkwood goes into effect.

Kirkwood residents passed the smoking ban in November with about 70 percent of the vote.

One man in Kirkwood said he was going out Friday to grab a meal and have one last cigarette. Critics of the ban said they think the ban will drive customers to other communities that still allow smoking.

Kirkwood resident Carol Adcock voted for the ban and says it can also bring in customers. "...I found it a little hard to believe that someone would give up their routine, if they enjoy the restaurant," she said.

The county-wide smoking ban will go into effect January 2011.
