USA, COBB COUNTY, Ga. — Smoking or vaping in one Cobb County city could soon be illegal, even on the sidewalk. But the proposal is getting mixed reactions.
Marietta already bans smoking, and now vaping, in public places like parks. Glover Park sits at the heart of Marietta Square. But while it is currently a no-smoking zone, take a few steps out onto the public sidewalk and it’s perfectly fine to light up. And you can smoke or vape on the sidewalks across the street, or presumably if you sit down to eat at one of the many restaurants with tables outside.
But all of that could change if the city passes two proposed changes to city ordinances. Channel 2’s Steve Gehlbach went to Glover Park where he saw at least three people smoking in and around the Marietta Square.
