Smoking Ban in public places in Hawaii



Hawaii may ban smoking on Waikiki Beach Hawaii lawmakers will consider a bill that would prohibit
lighting up cigarettes on world-famous Waikiki Beach. State law already prohibits smoking in all enclosed
and partially enclosed workplaces and public places, including restaurants and bars.The law has been
opposed by some bar and restaurant owners who say it has hurt business, although anti-tobacco groups
say it has had the opposite effect. House Bill would prohibit smoking on the beaches of Waikiki from the
shore break to the sidewalk of private property lines. The bill aims to protect Waikiki Beach from litter
such as cigarette butts, making it more attractive to tourists. Smoking would still be allowed on
sidewalks near the beach. If passed by the state House and Senate and signed into law, the smoking
ban for Waikiki Beach would take effect immediately.

Big Island Council approved the smoking ban in park facilities on the island.
By March 2007, two beaches in Hawaii are smoke-free. This is the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve
on Oahu and Kahaluu Beach Park on the Big Island. For the first time, the new law against smoking
in park and beach applies countrywide in the island of Hawaii.


ハワイ州では公園、ビーチでは規制された一部の場所を除いて喫煙できる。ビーチで喫煙OKとは意外であったが、
1961年撮影、エルビス・プレスリー主演映画、「ブルーハワイ」の舞台ともなり、貴重な海洋生物保護区の、
オアフ島東南端にあるハナウマ湾は禁煙ビーチとなっている。最近ではハワイ島の海岸での
喫煙が禁止されている。

筆者が確認した範囲では、オアフ島ワイキキビーチ、ハワイ島黒砂海岸ではだれ一人吸っていなかったし、吸い殻の
かけらは全く見あたらなかった。ワイキキ・ビーチなどではアルコール飲料(ビン、カンなど)の持ち込みを条例で
禁止しており、住民、観光客がこぞって環境を守って行こうとの意識を感じた。

 ショッピングセンター・モールとビーチ 2006年11月の新禁煙法の施行に伴い、
ハワイ州内の多くのショッピングセンター全域で喫煙全面禁止を設定している。モール内の遊歩道も喫煙が
禁止されており、頻繁に「no smoking 」の標識が掲げられている。

According to a report released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on smoking death
rates in the U.S. took a downward plunge and the states with the highest smoking rates have the equally
high death rates from smoking. The states that came in at the bottom with the lowest death rates were
Utah and Hawaii.

多くのショップをかかえているモール敷地内では遊歩道は禁煙である。しかし、ワイキキなどでは店舗入口から少し
離れた場所で喫煙する若者をよく見かけた。なお、ハワイ住民の喫煙率は17%以下で、米国平均よりも低い。
ハワイ州と同様に全面禁煙体制を敷いている州にユタ州があるが、共に喫煙による死亡率は全米最低である。
