Not sure why they can have Hookah Lounges. Unless it somehow falls under tobacco store.

Smoking is prohibited in almost all public places and workplaces, including restaurants and bars. "Public place" is defined as any enclosed area to which the public is invited or permitted, see statute cited below for a detailed list. Exemptions include: private residences except when used as a licensed child care, adult day care or health care facility; up to 50 percent of hotel/motel rooms; retail tobacco stores that are physically separated, so that smoke does not infiltrate into areas where smoking is prohibited; veterans and fraternal clubs as defined when they are not open to the general public; smoking as part of a Native American religious ceremony; outdoor patios as long as smoke does not enter into places where smoking is prohibited; and smoking as part of a theatrical performance. By rule, smoking is also prohibited within 20 feet of entrances/exits, windows and ventilation intakes to public places and places of employment, excluding outdoor patios.
