Petaluma Council toughens smoking restrictions


On Monday the Petaluma City Council unanimously voted to extend citywide restrictions on smoking which included private living spaces, medical marijuana and electronic cigarettes.

The majority of these restrictions will start to become effective in a months’ time especially in public places, such as bus stops, outdoor dining areas, car parks in the city and commercial sidewalks.

The restrictions covering private living area’s will be phased in.  Existing apartments, duplexes and condos (any housing with at least one shared wall) smoking will be prohibited as from the beginning Dec. 16 to allow for leases to expire and to be changed. It has been stated that any new multi-family housing units must be smoke-free by 16th July 2013.

However there have certainly been questions that have arose since last month's initial discussion, mostly regarding the inclusion of electronic cigarettes. At the same meeting there was no objections to regulating medical marijuana use were raised either.

Petaluma's ordinance was the result of efforts made by the American Lung Association and other health groups to protect non-smokers from exposure to carcinogenic second-hand smoke.

There is information that the Police Chief Pat Williams and Pam Granger of the Lung Association urged the council to treat e-cigarettes the same as regular cigarette smoke.

An electronic cigarette is made up of three components usually, a rechargeable battery, a heating element and a cartridge that contains a liquid suspension with nicotine. When a user inhales from the cartridge, the liquid is heated and a vapour is emitted.
