If you're going to a show at Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids and you're a smoker, you may (or may not) be surprised that the venue has gone smoke free.

According to Van Andel's Facebook page, the reason that smoking has been abolished at the arena and it's designated smoking area outside done away with is because of enhanced security measures and not penalizing people who enjoy tobacco.

Many venues have already adopted a no re-entry policy in the interest of the safety of event-goers, including our own Spartan Stadium and Breslin Center on the Michigan State University campus.

So remember that if you exit Van Andel for any reason, whether it's to smoke or not, you won't be allowed back in. Get more info from the Van Andel Arena Facebook page here.
