Smoking Police State?

03.02.07 | Comment?

Santa Cruz issued a new tool in establishing a police state by outlawing the use of tobacco in parks. We’re now well over the line into silly legislation that will only be used to hassle people when the police need a reason to do so.

I don’t smoke, I don’t like being around smoke, and I’m grateful enclosed areas are generally smoke free in California. That takes care of the health concerns of the non-smokers reasonably I believe as non-smokers don’t have a choice about breathing the waste air from smokers in enclosed environments. But smoking outside is the smoker’s business and shouldn’t be legislated as the waste air dissipates nearly the moment it is exhaled into the atmosphere.

Let’s not take this smoke-free stuff too far people…
