War Memorial Stadium — inside and out — is now officially tobacco free (that means cigarettes, snuff, chew, pipes, cigars).

But read the news release. It does NOT cover, for example, the golf course. There is a city park policy against smoking. Technically, it’s legally unenforceable though city officials insist lack of an enforcement ordinance is just a little ol’ technicality. I also don’t think this policy covers the smoking of pig, hot dogs, hamburgers ….

Oh, and, of course, if you really need a smoke when the game gets tight, you can go over to the Little Rock Zoo where tobacco lobbyist J.J. Vigneault and other pro-tobacconists on the Zoo board have kept the tobacco lamp lit.
