Yeah, but really, who smokes nowdays? I rarely see any cigarette smokers. I see hookah lounges and know a lot of people who smoke hookah at home, but really, almost never see any cigarette smokers.

I love that Calabasas no smoking ordinance.

Since it's the law, you are right - you HAVE to. Sucks that narrow minded people like you can impose such stupid laws & take away choices from others.

Really? I know less people smoke in LA than other areas of the country, but I see people smoking here every day.

The no smoking in parks I get. But shopping centers? That is ridiculous.

If the people in Calabasas aren't enough of a deterrent to living there, then the silly laws they make are (and I am not a smoker, I just think that law is stupid and overreaching.)

LOL. People can smoke at home. Keep that cancerous second hand smoke away from me and my kids. Its about public health and safety first. Your personal bad habit is not as important. Kudos to Calabasas for its smoking ban.

There are fewer native born upper middle class people, particularly native born upper middle class whites, who smoke than in other parts of the US.

However native born upper middle class people, particularly native born upper middle class whites, are a small minority of the population of L.A. County. So L.A. County has plenty of smokers.

They are a pretty large percentage of Calabasas' population, however. And with them come all the nanny-state hyper-regulation of one's personal life which is a California disease in general.

Do you operate an automobile or patronize mass transit? If so, you are doing more to damage your children's lungs than tobacco smoke could ever do in the open air.

Even if you do not partake in fossil fuel transportation, your kids are still being exposed to it's cancerous exhaust. You are a bad parent for making them live in a place that condones public burning of fossil fuel. Shame on you!

Exactly. That is why its so refreshing and great that the city of Calabasas has this no smoking ordinance to help reduce the amount of harmful chemicals in the air that effects us all. Its also great that a lot of folks drive Hybrid vehicles around here as well to do their part to help reduce the amount of toxins in the air. Plus your argument is beyond ridiculous because you are actually saying that ALL parents are horrible for having kids. But I do understand you say this from emotional upset instead of rational thinking because you are probably a smoker and/or you just disagree with the people of Calabasas caring about public health/safety and passing the no smoking ordinance. LMAO.

Calabasas AKA Cala-blackless (don't hate, it's coined by Calabasans) is Blah-ville, CA. Everything is cookie cutter and it has the heat of Woodland Hills. This is where you go to retire and yes, stop smoking. I will give them this, they are very health conscious there.
