I am sure you answer this question ten times a week, but my search of the forum still leaves me with some questions. I naturally assumed that like most EU countries, smoking in public places, restaurants, office buildings, public transportation and just about any indoor location is prohibited.
I find no language establishing the smoking policies of the Mercure Hotel, but there is a little no smoking symbol, which I assume means the entire property is non-smoking.
This, however, is my question. Is "coffee shop" a euphemism for a shop that sells marijuana? Do people smoke marijuana in "coffee shops", but not regular cigarettes? Are these the only places where "smoking" is sub-divided by category of what is smoked? If I go to a regular restaurant can I assume no one will be smoking anything?
