It always makes me do a double-take when I see someone with one, but most places I've been around here haven't banned them. But then most of them have a glowing blue end, so it's pretty obvious they aren't actually smoking.
Ever since Michigan went non-smoking in public places, some restaurants have had to completely change everything to try to bring in a new clientele because their smokers choose to stay home, while others have flourished. And then you have the places I hang out, where we all chip in to pay the minimal, token fine from the health department on the off chance they get enough complaints to be fined (it's something like ten complaints before you get a fine), and just smoke inside anyway. Luckily, our only outdoor "ban", is that you have to be ten feet from all doorways, which for the most part is pretty easy to do here.
