No smoking in parks, on the sidewalk, outdoor restaurnts, or even in the breezeways of apartment buildings! Can't imagine anything like this passing in the Midwest.....

"But if a nonsmoker asks a smoker to stop, the smoker must snuff it or face a possible fine in the hundreds of dollars or even a lawsuit."

Yeah awesome. That's what we need in California, more frivolous lawsuits.

Good. Why don't they just ban tobacco? Oh, yeah. State and Federal revenues...

Actually, Calabasas is an extremely nice city, very clean and just a canyon away from Malibu (and Pepperdine University, which overlooks Malibu & the Pacific Ocean). The median home in Calabasas is about $850k. It's a great place to raise a family, though with traffic, it's at least one hour from Downtown.

California generally leads in the nation in health issues, so the rest of country should prepare when it happens to their state.

All due respect, but there have been times that I didn't want to breath someone else's second hand smoke, yet I was left without a choice.
Goes both ways IMO.

I lived in Calabasas for a couple years...its a nice place. That's where Nick & Jessica (among other celebrities) made their home. They were in a gated community and I heard that Dr. Dre was there also.

I'm a former smoker also and though I do respect others choices, I personally cannot see where equal respect can be given unless there was a ban in every "public" place where people gather. If there were designated areas for smoking that would not entrude on my choice, I wouldnt have as much an issue. But sadly, very few are the rooms that actually trap the smoke, therefore allowing smoke to travel into areas that's meant for non-smoking.
