Those seeking their nicotine fix during Orioles or Ravens games have been accustomed to sequestering in designated corners of the stadium. Now, they'll have to leave completely. The Maryland Stadium Authority announced a new policy Monday banning smoking completely anywhere in M&T Bank Stadium and the entire Camden Yards complex.
Both the Ravens and Orioles have said they will announce a plan to allow smokers to exit the stadium and the re-enter. The MSA's new policy also makes it illegal to smoke any tobacco product within 25 feet of any entry, outdoor air intake, or operable window of the stadium structures.
