    I think that the concerns about smoking on beaches should be dealt with under littering laws.

    Smokers who leave butts on the beach can be charged a fine for doing so.

    It's outside. People can smoke outside. Although to be honest I rarely see people smoking at the beach.

    No. I do think they should not be permitted to throw their "butts" on the beach. They should take them home with them, just like dog owners scoop their dog's poop up in a bag.

    Did you go to school to learn to be that stupid or is it just a result of the meiotic dance? Where did you get the idea that Sister favored the proposed ban?

    Dayum! When I read posts like yours, I tremble for the future of the US. We're going to stupid ourselves into oblivion.

    They should be whatever the state's democratic process decides. I dislike cigarette butts in the sand but I dislike unenforceable regulations even more.

    It's basically a big ashtray anyway........ and It's outside!! On that note, I do pick up my butts after they are properly extinguished in the sand though.

    Unless they are also alcohol-free, kid-free, thong-free and big, fat man-in-Speedo-free.

    The US Constitution does NOT guarantee you Freedom From Annoyance.

    I'm an ex-smoker, and they are pushing for this here, too. I am for smoke-free restaurants and offices, but I think there should be a limit to the state's hectoring. If the smoke is just an annoyance issue, let the people deal with it themselves.

    Or will I be able to make complaints about strong perfume/AXE bodyspray, noisy kids, annoying music, idling SUVs, loud cellphone chatter, etc?

    Except breathing in annoying perfume or kids isn't really upping your risk for cancer.

    Prolonged or constant periods of inhaling smoke ups the risk, walking past someone who is smoking does not.

    Exactly. That's where I draw the distinction between indoor/outdoor and health risk/annoyance. If the state is to control annoyances, believe me: I have a long list - just like everyone else.

    Neither is breathing in smoke when it's diluted by the entire atmosphere of the earth.

    You know that grey matter inside your skull? It's for use, not decoration.

    I'd say no except too many smokers appear to be way to lazy and throw their butts anywhere they please. I use to walk the beach early in the morning and there are millions of butts in the sand ... It's disgusting
  • tredzwater Marc m 2012/11/15 20:08:47

    That's not a government problem. That's a parents-don't-teach-manners problem. And, it's easily cured.

    If I'm outdoors and someone throws a butt on the ground or lets their dog mess without picking it up I tell them, loudly, to fix it. At the rate some of you are going, the government will tell us when we can take a potty break and what kind of underwear we should have on.

    Are you a child that needs a constant nanny?

    I tell people a lot, to do what's right. The problem is there are more of them than us ... yes us ... I am on your team.
