Can we ban (and fine the offenders) cooking fish in apartments, then? I really, really detest the smell of fish !!!! And it takes two full cans of air freshener and two weeks to get rid of the odor. People who cook fish in their homes really lack consideration for others !!

The owner should be able to ban fish cooking on HIS OWN property. Politicians should not.
California Assemblyman Marc Levine, D-San Rafael, has introduced a bill to make it illegal for people to smoke in their own homes -- if they live in an apartment or a condo or a multifamily home. When last I wrote about Levine, he was pushing a statewide law to require grocers to charge for bags. Now he's after cigarettes -- but only the legal kind. With his new AB 746, Levine is following a trail blazed by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who pushed a law prohibiting the restaurant sale of large sugary drinks, which a New York judge overturned.

One politician...
