No, that's not a mistake, it's true, a town in California has banned some people from smoking in their own homes, depending on the kind of home they own.

According to an article from abcnews.go.com:

"The town of San Rafael, Calif., has passed a ban on smoking that city officials have called the most stringent in the nation. The new ordinance makes it illegal for residents to smoke in their own homes if they share a wall with another dwelling."

Of course that means if you happen to live in an apartment, condo, townhouse, etc., you can't smoke in your own private space.

Sometimes things can be taken just too far.

What do you think about this ordinance?
