Paramus health board bans smoking in public places

Paramus is once again at the forefront of tobacco control, as the Board of Health unanimously adopted an ordinance that prohibits smoking in borough parks, playgrounds, public swimming facilities and recreational areas.

The Paramus Board of Health banned smoking in borough parks, playgrounds, public swimming facilities and recreational areas.

The ordinance, approved last month, covers lighted cigarettes, cigars, pipes and electronic cigarettes within the boundaries of "smoke-free zones," borough public areas that include the Municipal Pool, the Band Shell and the Paramus Golf Club Mini Golf Course, according to Health Officer John Hopper. Several parks that are not used for recreation, such as Fireman's Park on Forest Avenue which just consists of a monument, are not covered under the ordinance.

I got my first electronic cigarette kit on VistaVapors, and I think its the best kit.
