Starbucks to Require Smokers to Stand 25 Feet from Building

Food-Starbucks2

(CNN) — If you’re a smoker and you like your Starbucks, you’re going to have to find somewhere else to light up.

The Seattle-based company will now require smokers to stand at least 25 feet from the business while smoking.

The old police let customers smoke as long as they were not on the store’s patio, which means sometimes smokers were just feet away from other patrons.

The ban goes into effect this weekend at all Starbucks locations in the U.S. and Canada.
