At the August 13 Center Township Supervisors meeting, an updated Young Lungs at Play policy was signed and adopted into effect, which now includes vaping/e-cigarettes.
With the goal of eliminating children’s exposure to secondhand smoke, the policy prohibits any product containing, made or derived from tobacco or nicotine that is intended for human consumption, whether smoked, heated, chewed, absorbed, dissolved, inhaled, snorted, sniffed or ingested. This is included but not limited to cigarettes, cigars, little cigars, chewing tobacco, pipe tobacco, snuff and any electronic devices like electronic cigarettes, cigars, pipes or hookah.
Last week Center Township Supervisor Butch Deter received the Young Lungs at Play signs to be displayed throughout the Township’s park and was recognized for the Township’s efforts to help protect the health and safety of our youth.
