Smoking in state parks ok for now

Joshpe Law Group LLP, a Manhattan law firm, filed the suit on behalf of CLASH. Attorney Brett Joshpe said, “Regardless of your view on public smoking, one thing is clear: it is wildly inappropriate for unelected personnel to be declaring behavior prohibited, giving the public the false impression of the force of law, when that very behavior is completely legal.” Joshpe also said that, if the Office of Parks proceeds to implement the new restrictions without the legislature passing a law first, his client would sue on that basis as well. The suit was filed in Albany County.
