Nevada's smoking ban in bars and restaurants went into effect last Friday. But because of a court injunction..and downright confusion by business ownersl..the law is not being enforced at this time, at least by certain agencies .
Washoe County's Health Department says it will not enforce this law until the case in settled down in Clark County, Reno's Police Department says it will do the same.
In a press release by the District Attorney this afternoon, Dick Gammick says Clark County's District Court has no jurisdiction here in Washoe County, his office will enforce the law unless a local court issues a contrary order.
Health officials concede while voters passed Question 5 on the November ballot, there was no text or plan or how it should be implemented or enforced.
