Smoking Bans in All States by 2020: CDC

In less than a decade, every state will ban smoking in restaurants, bars and jobsites, predicts the Centers for Disease Control. After all, 26 states have them now, and that's up from zero in the last decade. Everyone by now knows that smoking is bad, but Gary Nolan, of the smoking rights group Smoker's Club, says a nanny state is bad, too. "It's just a little bit more liberty slipping away at the hands of big government," Nolan said. Right now, there are seven states with no indoor smoking bans: Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, West Virginia and Wyoming.
