Smoking extinguished at Moorestown’s parks

Smokers thinking about lighting up at Moorestown’s parks should look elsewhere. Mayor Lisa Petriello discussed the steps Moorestown is taking to enforce the state ban on smoking in public parks at the most recent meeting of Moorestown Township Council.

Gov. Murphy signed off on revisions to the “New Jersey Smoke-Free Air Act of 2006,” which makes smoking cigarettes, cigars, pipes and using any smokeless tobacco devices illegal in New Jersey’s public parks, forests and beaches. The law went into effect as of Jan. 16.
