SANTA MONICA (CBS) Santa Monica smokers may be breaking the law if they light up in the privacy of their own homes, after the City Council approved a more restrictive anti-smoking law Tuesday night.
The ordinance would prohibit smoking for new tenants in multi-unit housing and force existing residents to declare their apartments and condos as smoking or non-smoking units, according to the Santa Monica Daily Press. If smokers neglect to designate their units, they lose the right to light up at home.
The City Council also asked for a drop dead date after which every unit in Santa Monica would be declared non-smoking.
Information about whether a unit is smoking or non-smoking would also be given to every resident in the building, concerning at least two city council members that the designation would create second class citizens, according to the Daily Press

Sooner or later, their Gore will be Oxed, then you can laugh and say "I told you so".
Will Santa Monica realtors adjust their listings to call SM properties slave quarters instead of homes now? Truth in advertising and all you know.
