NMB bans green laser pointers

North Myrtle Beach passed an ordinance banning green laser pointers Monday night.

The lasers are sold at many beach stores for about eight dollars and city officials say they are a nuisance.

North Myrtle Beach council voted to ban sales of green lasers to minors. Minors can only purchase a laser pointer if an adult is present.

Violators could get fined up to $500 and 30 days in jail.
