Wayne County, NY Bans Tobacco On County Property

The Wayne County Board of Supervisors last week voted to ban tobacco and e-cigarettes on all county property despite objections from several members.

Those who spoke out against the ban publicly worried that the government was overreaching their bounds.

The ban though goes above and beyond traditional bans in the past. If you are driving or sitting in your car on county property and you choose to smoke you must do so with the windows and doors closed.

The measure was passed 12-3 and will go into effect in a little over two weeks. Violators will be subjected to a $200 fine for a first offense.
