San Diego – A City Council committee will receive a proposed ordinance this week to ban smoking in housing complexes if the smoker is asked to stop by another resident, according to documents displayed on the city’s website.
Do the smokers get to ban/evict the nonsmokers by asking them to turn down the music, stop smelling up the hallways with stinky food, for smelling garbage, or for simply being rude? Wonder how many fist fights this will cause?
The proposal comes from the San Diego Smoke-Free Housing Task Force, made up of groups such as Social Advocates for Youth San Diego (SAY), American Lung Association, Communities Against Substance Abuse, the Health Association and a tenant advocacy group.
Once again, we have a 501(c)3’s, (ALA and AHA) proposing legislation, which is illegal according to the regulations set forth by the IRS.
