Smokers and drinkers should exercise their FREEDOM to smoke and drink and if it's as easy as placing your sand chair below the high tide line, well that's a terrific place to be. A short stroll down to the water's edge is rather appealing, too.
As far as I know, all NC citizens contribute to the Public Beach and Waterfront Access Grants, yet the cigarette butt obsessed of Wrightsville Beach with their power-tripping, freedom-stripping agenda believe it is their right to limit the rights of others.
What is it about freedom that's so difficult to understand?
The N.C. General Assembly established the Public Beach and Coastal Waterfront Access Program in 1981 by amending CAMA to provide the matching grants to local governments for oceanfront beach access areas. In 1983, the legislature expanded the program to include estuarine beaches and waterways. http://dcm2.enr.state.nc.us/Access/grants.htm
