Michigan is the 38th state to take up a state wide smoking ban in restaurants. Not only will you not be allowed to smoke in restaurants, but any public place that employs people. This applies to places such as malls, concert halls, nursing homes and anyplace else that serves food or beverages or employs at least one person. For years, non-smokers have been complaining about the effects of second-hand smoke. Second-hand smoke has been proven to cause many diseases, including lung cancer and upper respiratory infections. Waiters and waitresses have been trying to get away from second-hand smoke as well as patrons.

Unfortunately, the best viable option is for the smoker to take a good look at their health and situation and try to quit smoking. Kicking the habit will afford many benefits to a person's health. Easier breathing, less colds and infections, and healthy lungs, to name a few. Over 5,000 Michiganians lose their life each year due to tobacco. Health care costs are soaring. Michigan's ban on smoking will help drive down these costs for non-smokers who previously were exposed to the second-hand smoke.

  • Michigan Vacation Getaway

In search of America's most bizarre attractions, we journey from Illinois and across the Midwest to Michigan, epicentre of America's industrial heartland. Amidst the vast clutter of mundane car museums and tire factories, we discover four seriously strange roadside attractions, worthy of your visitation:

1. Pet Casket Factory Tours: Gladstone, Michigan

Choose the wrong coffin for your cat or dog and you could seriously compromise the quality of their afterlife. Chose the right one however, and they'll be happily sniffing crotches and scratching furniture in pet heaven for eternity.

If you're clueless about how to pick the right resting place for your pet, a visit to Gladstone's Pet Casket Factory is a must. Here you'll learn the inns and outs of pet coffin selection, and gain first hand insight into the manufacturing process.

4. World Champion Cow Grave At An Insane Asylum: Traverse City, Michigan

During her lifetime, Colantha the cow pumped out more milk than any other bovine on record. Her milk filled thousands of glasses, graced countless cereal bowls, and helped bake cookies for families across the nation.

How better then to honour this world record setting cow then by laying her to rest in a grave site set on grounds of Michigan's larges insane asylum (now defunct). If the story of Colantha's life and death doesn't put you in a melancholy mood, the decaying brick, chained porches, and bared windows of the surrounding institution certainly will.
