Cambridge votes for ban on smoking

By Donovan Slack, Globe Correspondent, 6/10/2003

CAMBRIDGE -- After Oct. 1, Cambridge bars will no longer be able to lure Bostonian bar and restaurant patrons with ''We're Still Smoking'' slogans.

After months of contentious debate, Cambridge city councilors last night voted to join Boston and 76 other Massachusetts communities in banning smoking in all workplaces, including restaurants and bars. The measure, which passed 9 to 2, covers about 75 bars and restaurants and 25 private clubs, which will have to post No Smoking signs.
