Clark County, Nevada, and its major cities, Las Vegas, Henderson, Laughlin and Boulder City, have decided to make prostitution illegal. However, business owners have the right to implement their own voluntary “no smoking” policies, specifying a certain distance from their establishment where smoking can be allowed. The only exceptions are vehicles based in the Goodsprings community, which is close to the buffer zone border. The Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act safeguards children and adults from second-hand cigarette smoke and second-hand aerosol from e-vaping products in most enclosed public places and indoor workplaces.
Companies that are not exempt should keep electronic smoking or vaping paraphernalia, including items that are used as ash containers, in areas where smoking and using e-vaping products are prohibited and inform customers who smoke that smoking and the use of e-vaping products are not allowed. These policies reduce the amount of tobacco smoke that enters a building through doors, windows, ventilation systems, or any other means, and allow customers to enter your business without exposure to second-hand smoke. Even if an establishment allows you to smoke or use electronic products to vape in an area where smoking or vaping is prohibited, it is in violation of the Nevada Clean Indoor Air Act and may be subject to applicable penalties.
