Salisbury gives final OK to smoking ban

In Salisbury Maryland, legislation has been passed that bans smoking and vaping in all Salisbury parks, playgrounds, and other public places.  Not only is a ban being put in place, but there will also be strict enforcement of fines for those in violation of the ban. The ordinance could result in a fine of up to $500, with each repeat offense likely resulting in a $1,000 fine. This type of ban is becoming more common among other beach towns.
