Teton County smoking ban challenged

Laramie, WY – The Virginian Saloon and a coalition of other groups are trying to get the smoking ban in Teton County overturned.
The Teton County Health district instituted the smoking ban. It was the first time smoke free advocates used this technique to get a smoking ban put in place. Now a saloon, and several associations are appealing the rule.
Their attorneys filed a complaint saying the smoking ban exceeds the health district's authority, violates individual rights and harms businesses.
Attorneys on both sides of this case could not be reached for comment.
