Trumann, Ark. Passes Smoking Ban


A new smoking ban is coming to Trumann, Ark., after the city council approved it by an 8-1 vote during its meeting on Monday. The council not only passed the first reading of the bill, but waived procedural rules and had it read simply by title for the required second and third readings, as well as passing an emergency clause.

The bill bans the use of all tobacco products as well as e-cigarettes and other electronic smoking devices on city-owned property, including within all enclosed buildings and in parks and the areas around municipal buildings, as well as in city-owned vehicles, according to a report by the Poinsett County Democrat Tribune.


There has been no public posting of the ordinance, as the city does not appear to have a website or any social media presence.

Trumann is located in northwestern Arkansas and has a population of approximately 7,500 residents.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
