A packed house of more than 100 people were on hand Tuesday as the Arlington City Council tabled a final vote on extending the city’s smoking ban to include nightclubs, bowling centers, pool halls, sexually oriented businesses and other workplaces currently allowing smoking under an exemption. The measure also brings e-cigarettes under the city’s regulatory authority for the first time, treating electronic smoking devices the same as tobacco products.
