On Tuesday, the Beverly Hills City Council discussed banning the sale of tobacco products, which was a bill originally proposed in February.
Of the 27 active businesses that hold city permits for sales of tobacco products, the draft ordinance would exempt three existing high-end cigar lounges in Beverly Hills.
Beverly Hills already has strict smoking regulations, like prohibiting smoking while standing still.
If passed, the Beverly Hills ban would take effect on January 1, 2021.
