According to the Source, the smoking rates in the USVI are the lowest of all states or territories.

This is great information. I often wondered why bars with no anti smoking rules were not as bad as in the states. Of course, open air buildings help, but maybe fewer smokers help too. Intelligent people know that they will will live longer and healthier if they do not smoke, so that says something about the people here.

Of course you can also get a contact high from just driving behind some of these non-cigarette-smokers, but that's a whole other topic!

Funny, I was thinking but the smoking rates are so high in Fortuna, where the rastas are!

I moved to St. Croix from Eastern Europe, where smoking is prevalent - in elevators, taxis, buses - everywhere.

One of the many joys I've experienced in the VI is what appears to be an extremely low incidence of smoking.

Wonderful! 🙂

The ones who do smoke must just do it around me:-(
Smoking in a restaurant or bar is like peeing in the pool. No reguard to anyone else!

Where's your pool, I am going to come pee in it. That is the second time that's been said.

It may be low with the general population but not the population that goes out to eat IMO. But I welcome the ban for small or enclosed places like bombay, case place, no bones, etc..., it would have been smart for those restaurants to impose a ban themselves a long time ago. For open air spaces you're just as like to get car fumes, boat fumes and other fumes, so it seems kinda silly to me. So in the open air places someone is going to step right outside the restaurant and it's just going to blow right back in!!! And always hate more laws telling what we can and cannot do.
