The Ocean City Town Council looked at potential changes to one of its ordinances Tuesday aimed at deterring vaping and marijuana smoking in the resort town.
While the current smoking ordinance identifies both smoking and vaping as unlawful in several parts of Ocean City except in designated areas, the major change would be an expansion of the definition of what would be considered smoking.
Compared to the current definition for smoking, the new one would not only explicitly list marijuana as prohibited, but would also include a host of other products that could be used for smoking or vaping, such as a hookah pipe, cigar or electronic cigarette.
City Manager Doug Miller said during a Tuesday work session that the proposed changes are based on an ordinance on the books in a county in California and have come out of two issues of recent concern.
