I am tired of hearing baout the government taking over.........they already do and we can't stop that. However, my issue is for several reasons...
1. litter - there is nothing worse than relaxing at the beach, putting your toes in the sand and kicking up butts or watching your little ones digging holes and coming up with shovels of cigarette butts
2.health concerns - second hand smoke has already been established as being dangerous. I do NOT want to have to move from my spot at the beach because someone parks next to me and starts smoking and the smoke always blows my way
3. Cigarette butts is the number one item collected at beach cleanups....our beaches are clean and inviting otherwise
4. Damages to our marine life
