No need for a license.
California banned smoking in your home if you live in multi-family housing.
And if you don't have a car then you are SOL.

Instead of a smokers license let's treat Cigs like guns.

You'll need a background check with a 3 day wait period. People in Chicago and DC can't legally carry.

Most will need a concealed Cig permit.

Because you have to make inroads and make it acceptable to the people.
Go after the vices with the worst one first.

Well Michele is leading the charge against my questionable targets.
She clears the hurdles of the process, while others tend her WH Garden.
