Partial ban on smokes outlined for Worcester
Worcester Telegram & Gazette
A move is in the works to have the city join a handful of communities statewide in banning the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco products by local health care providers, including chain pharmacies and other drugstores, and institutions of higher education.
At the request of the City Council, City Manager Michael V. O’Brien is recommending amendments to the city’s tobacco control ordinance to implement such a ban, as well as regulate the advertising of tobacco products within the city.
