Smoking Ban in public places in Hawaii

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$B!!(Bnear the beach. If passed by the state House and Senate and signed into law, the smoking
ban for Waikiki Beach would take effect immediately.
