Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday signed into law a bill that makes it a misdemeanor to deliver contraband such as tobacco products or wireless devices to state mental hospital patients.The bill, sponsored by state Sen. Sam Blakeslee (R-San Luis Obispo) and coauthored by Assemblyman Michael Allen (D-Santa Rosa), is among several introduced this year to address high levels of violence in the psychiatric facilities.
Oh sure take away the tobacco,that should lower the level of violence since so many patients self medicate with tobacco anyway.
Silly fucking me thinking that maybe the people with the problems that tobacco helps should be allowed to obtain and use it.
I never thought this would be a worldwide issue and yet it is.
