No Smoking…Except For Your Pot
I have always said, "if there is a bad idea to be had, it was probably created in California," and after living there off and on for 8 years, I can assure you, that statement is more true when it comes to San Francisco than anywhere else in the world.
Seems as though , the San Francisco Board of Supervisors wants to ban the smoking of everything -- except medically prescribed marijuana -- at public events on city property.
Let me rephrase that, the law would allow people to smoke pot, but not cigarrettes.
So you could theoretically be smoking marijuana at a child book fair or walk for cancer, but you would get in trouble with the law for smoking cigars and cigarettes at such public events.
Supervisor Eric Mar said, "It’s widely known that secondhand smoke is responsible for as many as 73,000 deaths among non-smokers each year in the United States, and there is no safe level of exposure." Mar also said he does not see the city having the resources to actively enforce the ban, and will require event sponsors to post signs and make announcement saying, "No Smoking."
Apparently, San Francisco would prefer THC vs. Nicotine and knowing the type of people who enjoy living there, bong water and residue is part of their diet.
