Canton Considers Underage Smoking Law

Listen to this story
The Village of Canton is considering a law to fine kids for smoking. The St Lawrence County Tobacco Free Coalition proposed the measure to the Village Board. It would levy fines of $50-75 to anyone under age 18 caught smoking in public. A public hearing on the proposed no smoking ordinance will take place January 23 at the Canton Municipal Building. Mayor Bob Wells says it started with complaints about young smokers outside Canton's elementary school.
