Under the ordinance, restaurants that opened after May First
must keep smoking areas separate. Smoking is allowed in attached
bars, but only if the restaurant makes 55 percent or less of its
sales in food.

All stand-alone restaurants, bowling alleys and bingo halls must
be nonsmoking by January First, 2006.

The Grand Junction City Council approved the ban in July.
A number of other Colorado communities also have smoking bans,
including Longmont, Pueblo, Aspen, Boulder, Fort Collins and
Snowmass.

There are about 150 such bans around the country, including
state bans in California, Florida and Delaware.
