What's easier for the cleanup crew on the beach - picking up 10 paper coffee cups,or picking up 10 cig butts?Well if that's true, then they better outlaw Starbucks too because I see so many discarded coffee cups, cup holders.
This is an excellent point. A few vocal minority group can mobilise and mange drastic changes. Having been only a smoker for 2 months, I've missed all the fun so far but my radar is up.I'll bet you didn't show up for the public hearings when these ordinances were passed. The anti's were there in force. Folks these laws and ordinance don't pass overnight. For the pipe smoker who own a home and is stuck smoking outside or in a garage take a stand and come in from the cold.
Also, if they want to cure a litter problem, you outlaw littering (which it already is), not smoking.

I think they should outlaw gulls cuz they poop everywhere. As much as the crazy laws in WA state drive me nuts, I have to say that I am glad Im back home now where i can walk down the street and not be threatened by an $1100 fine.It would at least be clean for the gulls to enjoy.
