Law | Montpelier, VT Looks To Ban Smoking, Raise Age

This week the city council of Montpelier was addressed by a prevention specialist who is working toward a goal of making Montpelier’s parks and downtown smoke free.

During the session Directors Ann Gilbert and Ginny Burley, the aforementioned specialists cited places that have similar bans such as Times Square in NYC and Boulder, Colorado.

The measure has already been approved by the Parks Commission and city Manager William Fraser said he would write a suggested plan for the next council meeting

The raising of the tobacco age was also discussed, in which the group is looking to raise the purchase age from 18 to 21, however for such a measure to happen it would require a bill from the legislature.

Montpelier, Vermont is home to 7,775 residents over 10.23 square miles and was settled in 1787.
