Beverly Hills first city to ban tobacco sales —

Here’s something travelers who smoke may want to begin looking for. With many establishments adopting a no smoking policy–is Beverly Hills setting a new trend?

The Beverly Hills City Council on Tuesday unanimously voted to make it the first U.S. city to ban the sale of cigarettes, cigars, e-cigarettes and other tobacco products.

The ban applies to gas stations, pharmacies, convenience and grocery stores, but includes exemptions for hotels and three local cigar lounges. It is set to take effect beginning in 2021.

Local business owners opposed the measure, arguing it would harm sales and could force employee layoffs. Meanwhile public health advocates argued that the benefits to public health outweigh the negative impact a ban could have on retail sales.

So for my smokers–you may want to begin looking out for this new trend when traveling–just in case you need reinforcements, or accommodations!
