Could you get the door, honey? It’s probably the smoke inspector

“California Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-San Rafael, has introduced a bill to make it illegal for people to smoke in their own homes — if they live in an apartment or a condo or a multifamily home.” [Debra Saunders, syndicated/RealClearPolitics]

But it will be OK, if you’re only smoking Pot.

Yes, this is the sort of nannyism which pushes the buttons of social conservatives. First, they are told by people that they are intolerant for wanting to push their lifestyle preferences on others through opposing same sex marriage, abortion, and marijuana use. Then the same people who scolded them about intolerance seek to ban tobacco, football (causes brain injuries), guns, and big gulp sodas. Perhaps, if you want the law to become more permissive for a few of your favorite things, you should allow others their favorite activities as well.
