• Recently there has been discussion about banning smoking in beach parks.  I believe Councilmember Anderson successfully pushed a bill that banned smoking in Kailua Beach Park.  Others may be under consideration.

    There are no notable beachfront areas in District 6 except Kewalo Beach Park.

  • There has also been discussion about placing restrictions on electronic cigarettes.  It’s not clear whether they are less likely to cause cancer, or whether the second-hand smoke is less dangerous.  E-cigarettes have already been banned from the UH Manoa campus.
