City of Gaithersburg, Maryland Smoking Ban

 

As of January 1, 2017, smoking and vaping is prohibited on City of Gaithersburg property and in City vehicles. Previous non-smoking regulations did not include vaping.

 

"While these ordinance changes primarily impact City facilities and public spaces, the changes that were made extend the ban of vaping and e-cigarettes in other places previously identified as "no smoking" areas, such as elevators, restrooms, healthcare facilities, retail establishments and restaurants, shared work spaces, schools and theaters."

Good morning Roy.  Smoking of any type is banned for anywhere where food is served or sold in Arkansas, the law went into effect during Governor Mike Huckabee's rein.  Love it just love it.

I like when they don't allow smoking, it is so detrimental to our health.  I was very happy when they did away with it in restaurants, as there were times that I couldn't even enjoy my meal because there was so much smoke around me.

I am always glad to hear about this type of ban. It violates my rights to clean air.

I know one thing.  I spend far less on having my clothes dry cleaned since many places have imposed bans on smoking.  I remember the first real estate office I worked in during the 1980s, had a bunch of chain smoking agents.  I could go there in the morning, and leave at the end of the day smelling like I was one of them.

I also recall the times attending very smoky meetings. Especially the builders association board meetings with the cigar smokers.

I am assuming that you mean that the new regulations inclue vaping. GOOD. I was appalled to see someone vaping in a hospital room recently. And NO one (including the nurses) said anything about it. ?!?!

I wish all cities would ban all types of smoking and not just cigarettes. I see more young people vaping when driving. Between the texting and vaping it's a very dangerous combination. Plus there are safety risks of exploding!  

This is a great public awareness post. Thanks, Roy.
