Grand Forks council passes smoking ban

Email News Alerts

Drinking and smoking in Grand Forks bars will be a thing of the past starting Aug. 15. Standing around in front of bars will be the new thing, but don't stand too close, or you might get in trouble with the law.


Smokers will have to be at least 15 feet from the entrance of a business, which, in the case of businesses located close together, could mean a very narrow smoking area.
