A bill that allows hookah lounges already in existence in Oregon to keep operating is headed to Governor Kitzhaber’s desk for final approval. Representative Mike Schaufler says adults have a right to submit themselves to smoke in a hookah lounge or cigar bar, if they choose. The bill will require cigar bars to operate in structures that are not connected to other businesses, except for a handful of cigar bars that are currently operating with separate ventilation systems.
