how to slip down a slippery slope

As Jacob Sullum has it, one little law at a time.
Last night KGO, the San Francisco news station, interviewed me about an ordinance the city of Belmont is considering that would ban smoking everywhere except in private cars and detached single-family homes. This would be the most sweeping smoking ban in California, which is saying a lot, and it is based on astonishing misinformation about the dangers of secondhand smoke.
I keep thinking I must be crazy: there's no way anyone could be crazier than the city of Calabasas, California (the state where cancer goes detected). But then, I should know better.
