Chew Tobacco, SPIT!

No TobaccoBy LaSona Turk

If you dip, chew or just enjoy a good spit, Marietta may not be the best place for these activities. Internet reports of a city ordinance restricting this particular habit have us wondering if it really does exist.

Those of you who spit from your trucks are welcome to do so in Marietta! Apparently, the city believes that driving a truck goes hand in hand with dipping, chewing and spitting. Bus passengers, however, must refrain from spitting in Marietta. If you are driving your car through the city, no spitting for you either.

We’re not sure if this ordinance was intended to curb tobacco use, encourage truck ownership or even if it exists as a law in Marietta. But, it does add flavor to the rich history of this great city!
