You have customers.

Some enjoy smoking.

But, you have prohibited smoking sections on your property.

Smoking might even be restricted throughout your entire property.

From what we’ve seen, you’re going to have customers smoking where they shouldn’t be.

Agree?

Think about it.

How easy is it to sneak in a few puffs without anyone noticing?

It’s effortless, especially if there is no way for other customers to report this problem to anyone on your staff.

If there aren’t ways for your agitated customers and vendors to report prohibited smoking offenders, you’re in for problems.

  • More smoking offenders catch on – the problem escalates
  • Unhappy customers take it upon themselves to resolve – conflicts occur
  • Medical issues because of second-hand smoke – legal cases
  • Unhappy customers – your bottom line suffers

We’re sure there are other hidden effects from this offense.

So, we must ask, do you have a way to handle it at your property?

Many properties have a concern for this issue but don’t have any solution in place to help customers report prohibited smoking offenders to their team.

There is a software solution you can start using immediately: Text Communication.

Are you ready to learn how your customers can contribute to your fight against this frustrating offense?

Great. Let’s get started.

“E-cigarettes and vaping are being banned in indoor public areas in New York, after Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill into law that will place the same restrictions on new and old nicotine delivery systems,” writes Bill Chappell in their latest NPR article entitled “New York Bans Vaping Indoors In Public: State Law Classes E-Cigs With Cigarettes.”

According to Chappell’s article, "These products are marketed as a healthier alternative to cigarettes but the reality is they also carry long-term risks to the health of users and those around them,’ Cuomo said, in a news release about the signing. ‘This measure closes another dangerous loophole in the law, creating a stronger, healthier New York for all."

“Citing the lack of broad regulations on what chemicals e-cigarettes can contain and how much nicotine they deliver, the governor's office says, ‘These factors could lead to long-term adverse health effects for e-cigarette users and bystanders," the NPR piece continues.

Chappell comments in the article that “When it takes effect next month, New York's new law will cover vaping under the state's Clean Indoor Air Act. The blanket restriction will not apply to people who want to use e-cigarettes in private homes, in hotel rooms, or at retail tobacco outlets.”

Smoking cigarettes might already be prohibited on your property.

But, what happens if your state decides to pass a similar Clean Indoor Air Act? Do you struggle with cigarette smoking offenders as it is?

Now, you’ll have to add another prohibited item to the list. What a headache, right?
