But The Equivalent Of Sucking On A Tailpipe Is Of No Concern

So I can now walk down a busy street in Calabasas, CA and not have to worry about breathing in any second hand cigarette smoke...just exhaust fumes from buses, cars and trucks. The citizens of that fair town must feel so much more protected and healthful. I believe Manhattan has a similar ordinance prohibiting smoking in its parks for the same reason. So I can sit in Washington Square Park surrounded by one of the largest concentrations in the world of carcinogen-billowing vehicles but the worry is that I might inhale the smoke from a cigarette burning in the hand of the guy at the next park bench. Makes perfect sense...if you're a left wing nut that prays at the altar of health.
