Los Angeles Officials Move To Ban Smokeless Tobacco From Sports Venues
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles City Council unanimously approved a motion to ban smokeless tobacco from all sports venues -- both amateur and professional -- in the city. The motion, which was introduced in June by city Council member Jose Huizar, calls for the city attorney to draft an ordinance within 30 days. The council will then take a final vote on the measure.
