Fighting to Smoke Outdoors in NYC
Posted: October 11, 2010
The premium cigar industry is mobilizing against New York politicians eyeing to ban smoking in much of the great outdoors. The Cigar Rights of America, International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association and the New York Tobacconist Association are all encouraging cigar lovers to sign petitions showing their opposition to any extension of New York's smoking ban.
Last month, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, one of the nation's most high-profile critics of smoking, proposed banning smoking in all of the city's 1,700 public parks and 14 miles of city beaches.
The New York Tobacconist Association is circulating a petition stating that signers are opposed to extending the ban and that decisions of this nature should be left to the individual. They also pledge to "to exercise public courtesy in the use of legal tobacco products" in those public areas.
Chris McCalla, legislative director for the IPCPR, said "In public places like these, common courtesy should prevail, not heavy-handed, misguided legislation."
