Legal Question

Asked on: 9/02/13, 12:58 pm

A business, like a cafe with an outdoor sitting area by the front door at a strip mall, has signs posted that read "no smoking." I noticed there are no state or county ordinances that say you cannot smoke outside of a private business. Can this business enforce their no-smoking policy? If so, how many feet away from the business does it become outside of their jurisdiction so that one may smoke a cigarette? Can enforcement lead to criminal arrest if the police are called?
