A California senate committee has passed a bill which expands the banning of workplace smoking to include retail tobacco shops. Tobacconists are outraged at the move, with one group calling it “an assault on small business.”
In a state which caters to “medical” marijuana use, one would think their attitude toward a still legal substance such as tobacco would not be so harsh. This is just one more example of completely inept and asinine lawmakers trying to justify their exorbitant paychecks.
