Cigarette filters and biodegradability ....

Cigarette filters are essentially made of plastic. Because they're plastic, they're not really degradable.

The biggest issue with smoking on the beach is the litter, not the second hand smoke. I spend a lot of my free time at the beach and cigarette butts in the sand are a constant occurrence. With a generic sea breeze of between 5 to 10 miles per hour, the issue of second hand smoke is not really an issue.

While it's easier to enforce a smoking ban, the right thing to do is to enforce a littering ban.

(FYI: I don't smoke)
