California city bans smoking in multi-family homes | Reuters

California city bans smoking in multi-family homes | Reuters:
A San Francisco suburb on Monday banned smoking in duplexes, condominiums and other multi-family homes, with city leaders saying they hoped to lead a wave of such regulations across California and ultimately the country.

The City Council in San Rafael, a community of 57,000 people about 15 miles north of San Francisco, voted unanimously for the ban, following a handful of other California municipalities that have outlawed smoking in buildings with as few as two units.
Thanks to Mystery Reader for this link.  Lawsuits over infiltration of second hand smoke from one unit into others are becoming common. Then came condo and apartment rules banning smoking, and now municipal ordinances.
