Supervisor Eric Mar, Happy Meal Crusader, Adds Smokers to the List of Things He Dislikes
|The picture says it all|
According to his proposed legislation, all outdoor events held on property owned by the city to be smoke free and organizers of these events would have to post signs letting smokers know they aren't welcome as long as they plan to light up.
Here's what Mar has to say for himself:
"This is another step forward to protect the public's health from the dangers of second-hand smoke," said Mar, who noted that 73,000 non-smokers die every year from said effects. It's a critical public health danger with no safe level of exposure."
But wait. What about pot smokers?
Medical Marijuana smokers are exempt, Mar says. "My hope is that people wouldn't light up at community festivals," Mar tells the HuffPo. "But if it's something medical and prescribed by a doctor, that should be permitted."
Now that we think about it, Mar would actually make a really great nanny.
