SF supes vote to ban smoking at festivals, parades

SAN FRANCISCO

Proponents say police would not be patrolling festivals for violators but instead, they would depend on peer pressure and a publicity campaign to keep people from lighting up.

If the ban gets a final approval later this month, it could take effect in time for the Chinese New Year's Parade in February.

Block parties would not be subject to the smoking ban.
