Smokeless tobacco products will be banned at playing fields and in sports arenas across Boston starting April 1.
The ban, signed last week by Mayor Martin J. Walsh, prohibits the use of chewing tobacco, snuff, dipping tobacco, snus and other smokeless products at all sporting events and any sites that host them.
“I’m proud to sign this ordinance today,” Walsh said in a press release on Sept. 9. “The consequences of smokeless tobacco are real and can be devastating. We’re doing the right thing for our children and I look forward to continuing on the path to making Boston a leader in healthy and active living.”
