Not only should they have banned smoking but also dogs on the beach! Who really wants to lay on top of poop!!! I love animals but now instead of cleaning cigarette butts, they still have to pick up dog poop!! I AGREE that majority rule of folks are truly slobs and inconsiderate of others and their property. I am truly tired of stepping in dog poop on my lawn when i mow it and picking up others cigarette butts all over the streets----poop on your own lawns and dispose of your butts! KEEP AMERICA GREEN AND CLEAN!!!

Well, as always, the comments by free American citizens encouraging the government to put more controls in place, to limit our freedoms makes me want to vomit. If you don't like the freedoms of responsible citizens, who don't litter, pay their taxes and live under the laws, then go move to freekin China. I will not miss you and do not let the door hit you when you leave.

There are many public properties where one cannot smoke. The beaches should be no different. Stay home and stink up your own property if you don't like this.

Ever hear of two wrongs do not make a right. I will smoke in the surf and if you don't like it move to China you idiot.

Good idea. It will keep marijuana off the beach too, especially medical marihuana, when they eventually legalize it.
