The state will be putting up signs warning the public about vaping or lighting or lighting up in public. State legislators have been trying to ban smoking for years, and finally Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the new law. Proposed by Sen. Steve Glazer of Orinda, sadly the measure does not differentiate between vaping and smoking, banning both on most parts of state parks and beaches. The law rightly bans throwing cigarette butts anywhere besides in the designated waste bins.
