Come May 1st smoking a cigarette – even an electronic one – will be banned on the Ocean City Boardwalk.
In addition, the resort will restrict smoking to designated areas on the beach.
Council member Matthew James called this a healthy decision for the town.
He said that the new law accommodates smoking and non-smoking visitors to the resort.
James noted that there is even a place on the beach for everyone…for those who want to light up while allowing non-smokers to enjoy themselves.
