How did residents of Los Angeles ever survive without such a caring city council making decisions for them? I shudder just thinking about such a scary world without democrats, communists and Stalin.
L.A. council extends smoking ban to outdoor cafes
Starting next year, restaurant patrons will be barred from lighting up within 10 feet of outdoor dining areas and within 40 feet of mobile food trucks. Violators faces fines of up to $250.
The city already bars smoking at parks, beaches and within 25 feet of playgrounds, sports fields and picnic areas. No one appeared at the meeting to oppose the extended ban. The ordinance was roundly praised by representatives from groups including the American Cancer Society, American Lung Assn. and California’s Clean Air Project, as well as downtown resident Peggy Moore.
Even the French are laughing at us, praise Rachel Maddow. Our overlords went on to say they are aware that people are still legally allowed to smoke on their property, and will address this public health emergency with the full fury of the tax board, the IRS and the teachers unions of California combined. After they tend to more pressing matters, of course.
