If you're a smoker and you like your Starbucks, you're going to have to find somewhere else to light up. The Seattle-based company will now require smokers to stand at least 25-feet away from the business while smoking.

The old policy let customers smoke as long as they were not on the store's patio, which means sometimes smokers were just feet away from other patrons.

The ban goes into effect this weekend at all starbucks locations in the United States and Canada.

Looks like Starbucks cares more about the people of Louisiana that the state does, they are banning smoking outside their doors when the state still lets the casinos and bingo halls smoke freely, seems like as long as the big money gaming parlors are raking in the money no one cares that you have to risk your life with second hand smoke, just make sure the politicians get their cut and pockets full , they will turn their heads the other way, its time to STOP ALL SMOKING IN PUBLIC AREAS .
