Vote To Ban Smoking In Minneapolis Parks Tabled
(Minneapolis, MN) -- More research and more public comment are needed before a vote is held to ban smoking in all city parks in Minneapolis. The city's Park and Recreation Board tabled the proposal this week, with part of the debate focusing on whether electronic cigarettes should be included in the ban. The city banned tobacco use within 100 feet of park buildings, playgrounds, pools, and beaches in 2010, but tickets cannot be issued for violating the policy.
