OC Council updates smoking ordinance by including vaping and marijuana

A town that focuses on tourism, Ocean City wants to continue keeping it as a family friendly environment. That's why the town has updated their smoking ordinance. 

The council noticed there was a loophole in their wording when it came to specifics. They wanted to be more clear in the ordinance by including marijuana and vaping on the beach and boardwalk. 

We're told marijuana is not an issue as of now but they are trying to be proactive. However, vaping has become an increasing problem as its popularity increases. 

This is a way to protect visitors and community members from involuntary exposure and a way to ensure Ocean City continues to provide a welcoming environment for everyone.
