Living in California I find it easy to think that the rest of the country believes things much the same way that we do.

That’s hardly the case.

Take outdoor events for example.  It’s an easy question in my opinion to answer.  Should you be allowed to smoke at the beach?  Should you be allowed to smoke at a wine tasting event held outdoors in the vineyard?

Of course not.

The beach has plenty of little kids.  My wine club might be shipping me a $50 bottle of wine and I don’t want your smoke anywhere near that vine.
