New Smoking Ban May Affect Even More Public Places in New Jersey
Tobacco is still dangerous for your health and can lead to a variety of health issues. For those of you who smoke, the public places where you can light up, may be shrinking all over the Garden State.
Thanks to a pair of New Jersey lawmakers who want to extend the recent no smoking on all public beaches ban, which was signed into lay by the Governor this past July, according to NJ.com.
The new extended smoking ban would make it against the law to smoke in even more public places including all boardwalks, amusement parks, sporting facilities, racetracks, recreational areas, historic sites and even cemeteries, according to the report.
The new extended law now banning smoking on public beaches and state parks takes effect in January of 2019. Be prepared to part with some cash if you're caught lighting up on public beaches and state park including $250 for the first offense, $500 for the second and $1,000 for ever time you caught after the second offense.
