So, let's see

$0.25 per butt surcharge for litter.
For a piece of paper that is typically rolled up into a round ball the size of a marble then dropped onto the beach sand where it biodegrades.
As opposed to a deposit on cans and bottles that don't?

I agree that those who empty their ashtrays should be punished as that is carrying it way too far.

The main problem with smoking is NOT the litter - admit it. It's the secondhand smoke that many find offensive. When smoke gets blown around it gets carried into "your air space". At the beach it interferes with your enjoyment of the salt air.
Smoking bans are more easily enforced than littering bans for cigarettes.
