Starbucks Bans Smoking Within 25 Feet of Stores

Policy goes into effect June 1

If you are a coffee-and-smokes type of person, you'll probably find hanging out at Starbucks a bit annoying in a few days. The Seattle-based giant will restrict smoking within 25 feet of its storefronts starting on June 1. Electronic cigarettes will also be banned at the retailer's 7,000 U.S. locations on that date.
