More Smoking Bans

Because no one likes Smokey McSmokerton blowing ash all over their organic eggplant, the city council voted to ban smoking at all farmers markets. "The measure was written by Councilwoman Wendy Greuel, who argued that city officials have been promoting the health benefits of farmers markets and that smoking in such locations undermines that message. Greuel said most farmers markets are small enough that smokers can walk away if they need to light up." [LAT]
