Boston City Councilor Wants To Ban Nip Sales

March 23, 2023

Should Boston ban nips?

At least one city councilor wants to do it.

City councilor Ricardo Arroyo of Hyde Park plans to submit a proposal to the council that would ban the sale of 50- and 100-milliliter bottles of liquor in Boston.

Ricardo’s main concern? People litter nip bottles.

“In the Hyde Park neighborhood of Boston, residents in efforts of reducing litter collected 10,000 nips in less than two months, highlighting the impact littering has on our communities,” Arroyo told WCVB.

Other members of the council have not yet weighed in on the issue.
