Places Smoking Prohibited


Policy Analysis

This is leading edge because it includes all tobacco products, not just those that are smoked. Naming specific properties in a bylaw is not recommended.


Although laudable that all tobacco products are included, it does present a challenge to bylaw enforcement.
