Will Selling Tobacco Within 1,000 Ft. of Schools Become Illegal?

Here’s one motion that has been going through the halls of L.A.’s City Hall quietly, without much notice. Former LAPD Chief and South L.A. Councilman Bernard Parks wants the city attorney draft up an ordinance banning the sale of tobacco within 1,000 feet of schools. And it wouldn’t just be for new businesses, it would restrict current ones, too: "If an ordinance grandfathers existing tobacco retailers, the hours of operations/sales should include, but not limited, to prohibit sales during school hours, hours when students are walking to school, and hours when students are walking home from school," reads the motion, which goes before the Council today.
