Now customers at grocery stores, restaurants, food trucks, even institutional cafeterias have to find another way to get liquid into their mouths. Compostable paper and plastic straws are allowed under the ban. People who have a medical need to use a straw are exempt.
Failure to comply may result in a $250 fine, although city leaders told the Times that the initial phase of the law is more about raising awareness.
