Having a smoke on an apartment or condo patio or balcony in Santa Monica will soon be verboten under city law. The Santa Monica City Council on Tuesday voted to ban people from smoking "within 25-feet of a door or window in any multi-unit residential building," according to the Santa Monica Daily Press. The city already has some public smoking ordinances in effect, including banning it on city beaches, outdoor dining areas and on the Thrid Street Promenade.
