A Missouri man is a designated smoking area!

John Britton is a lobbyist at Jefferson City, Missouri. He's been doing it for over 50 years and has built a reputation for being quite a character. Among his bigger accomplishments is Missouri's really low cigarette taxes.

Due to how well known and effective John Britton is, he was designated by a 1996 Missouri Senate Resolution to be a designated smoking area. Smoking is permitted within 10 feet of Britton anywhere in Missouri. Britton is now 88 and smokes three packs a day. It was done as a joke, but the law actually went into effect and he can now smoke almost anywhere in the Missouri city.
