DURING BEACH CLEANUPS ONE OF THE MOST FOUND ITEMS OF LITTER IS CIGARETTE BUTTS. THE STATE IS NOW ACCEPTING PUBLIC COMMENT ON PROPOSED NEW RULES THAT WOULD RESTRICT SMOKING OF TOBACCO PRODUCTS ON OREGON BEACHES. MAKING CONTACT WANTS TO KNOW IF YOU WOULD SUPPORT THIS RULE CHANGE?
 
So, they want to make it illegal to smoke on Oregon beaches. It’s OK for 500,000 dogs to relieve themselves on the beach, but don’t let anybody light up while peacefully watching the sunset! Let’s make it illegal to take dogs to the beach, Or babies (diapers) Or food (containers & wrappers) Or drink (cans, bottles, plastic) Why don’t we make illegal for PEOPLE to go on the beach! They would solve EVERYTHING!
 
I’ve always heard SOLV finds (per weight) more plastic that anything else on the beaches. There might be enough cigarette butts to (maybe) fill a 5 gallon bucket. I doubt that very much. And yes, there might be 500 butts, personally, I take mine back home with me.
 
If cigarette smoking caused Cancer;, everyone who smokes would have cancer. Everyone needs to get off this “Hate trip” of smoking and concentrate on the real problems. 250 million cars running every day on our roads. Dryer sheets. Sealed up buildings. And all the artificial colors and flavors they put in our foods. That’s just to name a few!
