Mayor Nutter Bans Smoking in Public Parks, Effective Immediately

Yesterday Mayor Nutter signed a bill that bans smoking in all Philadelphia public parks.  Although no fines or penalties will be given, Philly officials plan on enforcing this ban which is an extension of the Clean Indoor Air Worker Protection Act.

This comes fresh off the heels of the Mayor prohibiting electronic cigaretters being sold to minors as well as banning electronic cigarettes in public places such as restaurants and bars.  Mayor Nutter was quoted as saying, “Smoke-free park policy furthers these gains, protects our natural resources and provides safe, clean, healthy places for Philadelphians to spend their time outdoors.”

Although the Mayor’s intentions are noble many critics are responding with claims that these types of bills are impeding on civil rights.

 

Let us know what you think. Is this new ban necessary and fair?
