Can you chew at Safeco?
Legally, that is. Throwing this out to the hive mind: the M’s claim you can’t smoke or use chaw at Safeco Field (never you mind that wad Ibanez works over, spitting streams of brown goo):
In compliance with the Washington Clean Air Act, Safeco Field is a no smoking (including smokeless tobacco) facility.
Except that doesn’t seem to be right, as it’s not covered in the Washington Clean Air Act (Chapter 70.94 RCW).
They might mean Chapter 70.160 RCW, the “Smoking in public places (formerly Washington Clean Indoor Air Act)” but I don’t see anything in there about keeping people from enjoying a pinch of jaw cancer. In fact, the definitions seems to be pretty clear that it’s only smoking that’s banned.
Am I wrong? Is the team claiming that chew tobacco is banned by law as a matter of convenience? Or is this addressed someplace else I’m not seeing?
