San Francisco Votes To Make Smoking Tobacco In Apartments Illegal, Marijuana Allowed

San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to ban smoking in apartment buildings with three or more units, CNN reported.

The proposed ordinance is an effort to protect residents from secondhand smoke, and extends the existing ban on smoking in common spaces like stairwells to inside apartments and condos. Medical and recreational marijuana use, respectively, would not be banned under the ordinance. Offenders will face a hefty $1,000 fine for each violation, according to the report.

Tenants could not be evicted for violating the ban, reports ABC News. Sixty-three California cities already have bans in place.

The board’s original proposal included a ban on marijuana. But supervisors excluded weed from their amendment because doing so would have removed the only legal place to smoke.
