Smoking Outdoors: the Next Ban?

I've observed over the years that trends which take root in California usually arrive in the UK a year or two later.

If that is true, British people may want to take note of a law being passed through the California state senate this week banning smoking on public beaches and state parks. Senator Jenny Oropeza, one of the bill's sponsors, claims that 1/3 of debris on America's breaches comes from cigarettes.

I predict it is a matter of time before similar legislation is proposed in the UK Parliament - probably via the national assemblies in Wales and Scotland first.

Remember where you heard it!
