California + Cigarettes

California is trying to ban smoking in state parks and on beaches. I don’t smoke, but even I find that to be ridiculous. If someone wants to smoke, let them smoke. Maybe I’m wrong about that, but there’s too much restriction nowadays. I have friends that smoke on camping trips, and they always always always pack their cigarette butts out. I’m sure they’d do the same on a California beach. As San Bernardino Count legistlator Anthony Adams told the SF Chronicle, “”Prohibiting smoking is not the answer. [It] assumes everyone who smokes does something intrinsically criminal.” Read more here.

    They outlawed alcohol on beaches in San Diego not too long ago. It was sad, but a lot of the beaches are nicer now. I’m all torn up inside about it b/c I love freedom and nice beaches.

    I’m still a little upset that Obama outlawed cloves.
