SMOKING BAN POSSIBLE AT ALL BEACHES AND PARKS

Gov. Chris Christie now has the power to ban smoking at all public parks and beaches. A bill is sitting on his desk after it advanced through the legislature. There has been a rise in efforts to keep secondhand smoke from impacting people as smoking bans have picked up in recent years. In total, 18 beaches in the state have gone smoke free in recent years, on a town-by-town level.
