Comments: Smoking Bans

For California....it does not surprise me! San Francisco banned smokeless tobacco any & everywhere there little more than a year ago.

It really is not a health issue but is presented as one to the gullible public. It is about personal liberty and individual rights being curbed and halted to please a few.

It has in some areas in Texas become an economic issue when smoking be was banned in restaurants and bars. Some of those establishments did find their "pair" and had the ban removed or satisfied requirements to allow it.

Smoking bans indoors, I am fantastically happy with. The problem being that you don't have a choice if you're inside, except for the obvious, "Well don't go in there" option, which isn't really a choice at all.

Banning smoking outside, that's too much.

Just makes me want to fly out to California and light up in protest...

Didn't some of the nitwits out there just ban handguns so a law abiding citizen can't protect theirself too? What we've always said in the South, "California, what ain't fruits and nuts are flakes." The "good people" need to move out of California and leave all the moonbats to pass idiotic laws on themselves.
