Yesterday, the almighty Board of Supervisors approved an ordinance "expanding the city's regulations against public smoking." That is to say, you can no longer light up a smooth, relaxing stick of solace at in any outdoor restaurant dining areas, in service waiting areas (like lines for ATMs, concerts, movie theaters, sporting events, taxis and bus stop shelters), multi-unit housing, and at farmers markets, homeless shelters, and charity bingo games, and within 15 feet of business doorways.

Smoking, however, is still allowed in private homes, on the streets, and in bars that have semi-enclosed outdoor smoking areas.

The ordinance, introduced by Supervisor Eric Mar, is expected to be signed by Mayor Gavin Newsom, who is adamant about making San Franciscans as healthy (and thin) and human possible.
