As many of you have read and heard, Pasadena, CA has passed an ordinance to make smoking in public illegal.
So if you live in Pasadena and light up in a public spaces, you could get a ticket. The soft enforcement is taking place for the next few months. Word is that after the new year the law will be enforced.
$100 first fine, $200 second, $500 third.
Although this type of law scares people it is a step in the right direction, smoking is BAD for you and people around you, it pollutes the air and many people are allergic to the smoke.
