The rules also call for public placards of the smoking ban. No tobacco is allowed to be sold through vending machines, and people would be hired to watch for violators of the public smoking ban. Outdoor smoking zones would be away from public access roads.

Public places include parks, restaurants, hotels, theaters, and museums, but not offices.
