No Butts On The Wharf

Smokers abusing their freedom by littering get what’s coming.

In December, Fisherman’s Wharf will join the list of city spots where lighting up is illegal.

The City Council this week, at the request of the wharf business association, voted 5-0 to ban smoking on the tourist-oriented wharf.

The association voted 26-6 in favor of the smoking ban, and no one spoke in opposition to the move before the City Council. City officials also are investigating whether to expand its no-smoking areas to downtown areas.
