The city of Charleston is in the process of tweaking 'adult zoning laws' in an effort to slap tighter, more direct regulations on businesses to prevent any future problems.

According to the article in today's Post and Courier:

The proposed zoning change would prohibit any "nightclub, bar, juice bar, restaurant or similar commercial establishment" from tolerating anyone, including patrons, who expose "specified anatomical areas" -- which in some cases can involve areas entirely covered by clothing.

No changes have gone into effect just yet, but click here to read up on what was discussed during the city's Planning Commission meeting.
