Nebraska continues to keep cigar smoking illegal even in cigar bars

The attack on the cigar industry continues in Nebraska as the latest challenge to the state’s indoor smoking ban was defeated on Wednesday, November 14, 2014, by the Nebraska Supreme Court. The Nebraska Supreme Court ruled that all public establishments in the state must be covered by the 2008 Nebraska Clean Indoor Air Act and found the 2009 exception carved out for cigar bars was unconstitutional. The ruling will cause Nebraska’s 12 cigar bars to abide by the decision of no smoking inside their businesses or face fines for doing so.
