Marin County Wants You Breathing Second Hand Pot Smoke, but Not Cigarette Smoke

Typical liberals - ban the politically incorrect while protecting their own personal vices:
Marin’s war on smoking was blunted Tuesday as a measure cracking down on tobacco and other “weed” was sent back for revision to make clear the crackdown does not include marijuana.

Although supervisors were in agreement with the policy when county staff last month asserted an ordinance outlawing smoking in unincorporated-area apartments included marijuana and other herbs as well as tobacco, the county board Tuesday abruptly called for revisions making clear tobacco was the only weed at issue.

The move came at the urging of Supervisor Kate Sears, who called for changes in ordinance language defining smoking as puffing “tobacco, weed, spices, herbal or other plant life” to make clear only tobacco products were involved.
I'm all for personal freedom, but your freedom to smoke ends at my nose. If you're going to ban smoking, ban it all, not just the stuff you don't like while protecting the stuff that gets you buzzed.

Marijuana smoke causes as much, if not more lung damage and heart disease, with the added benefit rotting your brain and being addictive.

Hypocrites.

So, cigarettes, you inhale the smake and then exhale it. The weedy goodness, you inhale...........................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................and then exhale, giving all the bad parts time to adhere to your lungs.

Real smart. Uh huh!
