A package of anti-smoking bills passed the State Senate this year, but it looked as if they'd been killed by Assembly members who've taken large amounts of tobacco money. Now the measures are alive again -- in a special, legislative session to address healthcare financing. The major goals are preventing e-cigarettes from being used in public and raising the smoking age from 18 to 21. Would they limit the personal freedom of Californians who've reached the voting age?
Also, after years of drought, it's "rain, rain go away" in much of the Southland. Is this week's weather a preview of things to come?
