Starbucks to place ban on smoking with 25 feet of building

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Starbucks is making some changes to its customer smoking policy, and those changes will go into effect this weekend.

Smokers will now have to stand at least 25 feet away from the business while smoking.

The old policy simply required smokers to avoid the patio.

The ban goes into effect this weekend in the United States and Canada.
