Supervisor Eric Mar, the unhappy french fry guy, has taken on some rather dubious causes: Banning Happy Meals and stripper mobiles. But since 86ing cheap meat and strippers isn't going to totally protect your children from this terrible place called Earth, Mar has decided to go ahead and ban smoking at local street fairs, too.
According to his proposed legislation, all outdoor events held on property owned by the city to be smoke free and organizers of these events would have to post signs letting smokers know they aren't welcome as long as they plan to light up.
Here's what Mar has to say for himself:
"This is another step forward to protect the public's health from the dangers of second-hand smoke," said Mar, who noted that 73,000 non-smokers die every year from said effects. It's a critical public health danger with no safe level of exposure."
But wait. What about pot smokers?
