SaMo Calls Off Apartment Smoking Ban

New, 12 comments

Well that didn't last long. Last night, the Santa Monica City Council reversed a July 10 decision that would have banned smoking for new occupants of multi-family residences (i.e., apartment and condo buildings). Mayor Richard Bloom and City Councilmember Terry O'Day changed their vote on the second reading, both citing a need to devote greater study to the ban's impact on medical marijuana users. The ordinance had originally passed by a 4-2 vote. [West Hollywood Patch]
