Null

The southern California city of Goleta could enact a smoking ban after it received its first reading at the city council’s May 6 meeting.

The proposal seeks to ban smoking in public places such as restaurants and stores, as well as in recreational areas such as parks and hiking trails. The ordinance also includes language aimed to prevent access to tobacco products by those under 18 years of age, including limiting sales of e-cigarettes and similar devices to those over 18, preventing minors from working at stores that sold those products and restricting retailers to be more than 1,000 feet from schools.

The Goleta City Council’s next meeting is scheduled for May 20. Goleta is home to approximately 30,000 people and is located 10 miles west of Santa Barbara.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
