Florida SB 670: Forbid Smoking and Vaping on Public Beaches and in Public Parks

Senate Bill 670 i is sponsored by Republican Senator Joe Gruters and would mimic the City of Miami Beach's recent ban on smoking marijuana in public (including parks and beaches.)

SB 670 would place a permanent ban on all vaping and smoking within public parks.
Effective Date: 7/1/2020
Last Action: 11/6/2019 Senate - Referred to Community Affairs; Innovation, Industry, and Technology; Rules

If SB 670 became law, it would take effect next summer.

While second-hand smoke is a concern, at what point does one's liberty to consume cannabis as a constitutional right end? If passed, that right will end at the public beaches and parks in Florida.

Cannabis in Florida is illegal for recreational use.

  • possession of up to 20 grams is a misdemeanor offense

  • punishable by up to a year in prison

  • a fine of up to $1000

  • and the suspension of one's driver's license

  • several cities and counties have enacted reforms to apply lesser penalties
