On January 1st, 2020, the General Law provision of Section 48.2 went into effect that prohibits smoking/use of tobacco products in our lodge homes. The provision reads: “The use of any tobacco product or smoking device (including e-cigarettes) is strictly prohibited at any time in the social quarters or lodge home. The use of any tobacco product or smoking device (including e-cigarettes) is allowed on lodge property in lawful outdoor areas or areas for which the General Governor’s Office has provided a dispensation.” The membership of the Order overwhelmingly approved this provision at the 2019 International Convention, and expect that they can now enter any Lodge to enjoy a smoke free experience, and that their smoking brothers and qualified guests have been appropriately accommodated.
Any violations of Section 48.2 will be handled by members of the Moose International Field Staff. Complaints can be forwarded to the Moose International General Governor’s Office for follow-up.
