Re Lighten up on e-cigarettes (Another View, Jan. 26): Dale H. Gieringers prejudice is showing in this opinion piece. He and other users of marijuana and e-cigarettes are free to use them in nonsmoking areas. But to force unwanted exposure from either e-cigarettes or marijuana on unwilling nonsmokers who choose not to compromise their lungs is unfair. Californians have worked hard for our protections, and many of us laud the decriminalization of marijuana and the effort to find alternatives to tobacco. But we value our clean air and our healthy bodies. We deserve to retain our protections from the latest unregulated fad.
