beach smoking banHawaii News Now recently reported that as of Wednesday, July 1, a smoking ban at all Hawaii state parks and beaches goes into effect.

House Bill 525, which was approved in June, makes it illegal to smoke and use tobacco products and e-cigarettes at all state parks, including beaches, picnic and camping areas, trails and roadways, but does allow for the possibility of designated smoking areas.  Smoking is already banned at all city and county parks throughout Hawaii, except for those in Kauai County.

Penalties for offenders will be $100 for a first offense, $200 for a second offense, and $500 for all subsequent offenses.

In total, the Hawaii State Park System includes 50 parks that encompass approximately 30,000 acres, spread across five islands.
