Florida City Implements Smoking Ban on Beaches and Parks
Florida city bans smoking and vaping on the beach: a new law in effect from July 1st. Similar laws also apply in California.

The Mayor of Panama City, Florida, Mark Sheldon, spoke to the council and emphasized the need to take measures regarding smoking and vaping on beaches. The committee requested that the city attorney draft a bill to ban smoking and vaping on the beaches.

Miami prosecutor Amy E. Myers told council officials that according to the Florida Clean Air Act, bill 105 of the Florida House of Representatives can prohibit the use of cigarettes and e-cigarettes. The bill was passed by the House in February, approved by the Senate in March, and signed by the governor. On June 24, Ron DeSantis, the bill became law on July 1.

Similarly, since 2020, state parks and beaches throughout California have banned the use of electronic and traditional cigarettes. State legislators have been attempting to ban these activities for years, and finally, Governor Gavin Newsom signed the ban into law.
