City Council Doesn't See the Light; Smoking Also Targeted

City Council Doesn't See the Light; Smoking Also Targeted - Laguna Beach, CA Patch
Clearly in a banning mood, the council also voted to support a resolution that would make it illegal to smoke in a 100-foot passageway downtown off Coast Highway between Toes on the Nose and theRocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. The ordinance has to come back to the council for a second reading before it can become law, which seems inevitable.
And when it does … well, good luck trying to enforce it.
The city has already abolished cancer-stick sucking on beaches, parks and sports fields (next: your own living room?), but this is a weirdly specific area. What could possibly be the problem with smoking in just that one spot?

Well the problem is apparently the homeless people who smoke there.
There are homeless people who can afford to smoke in California ?
According to the only online source I could fine which makes me sick (tobacco free kids,not linking it here they get enough press without me inadvertently adding to it) the average price in California is $5.25 per pack.
Somehow I'm sure it costs more than that.
