A California town has banned smoking in homes, enacting what is regarded as the toughest anti-smoking law in the country, the New York Times is reporting.

A new ordinance in Belmont, Calif., bans smoking in any residence that shares a floor or ceiling with another, such as apartments and condos.


Well, I guess there’s only one thing left for stubborn smokers to do in Belmont — move!

I’m not a smoker, but I have a few friends who are.  They aren’t proud of it, and most are trying to quit.  A smoking cop in their homes would probably do the trick.

It’s kinda strange, but with all of the smoking restrictions and bans around the country, the only place where people are free to smoke where they want is Russia.
