The Forest Gump of smokers.
Your not to bright are ya? Did you see the movie?
Forest Gump was mentally challenged but still very smart, brave , and successful. If that's another attempt to insult me i think you should read more or just give it up. Your not very good at it. Is there anything in your sad little life you are good at? A little advice, get out of your mothers basement do a little reading and you just may make something of yourself. And come up with a better insult, your last few make's you look kinda dumb.

I'm saying that many ppl leave their cigarette butts, unlike their marijuana roaches, on the beach. I don't partake of either but at least ppl are likely to take their 'dope' with them when they leave. They are likely to take their cars and grills with them too.
But do you haul off your butts with you?
Not all smokers are litterbugs. It is a matter of being considerate and possessing good manners. MANY nonsmokers litter, too. I guess that it is not cigarette butts they are leaving behind you can ignore it? Please stop being so fixated on the smokers, OK?

We should make the littering smokers go down and clean up all the cigarette butts with a kitty litter scooper.
At least every day for a week until they understand what a disgusting nasty habit it is.
I mean I am sick of people who smoke treating the world like a giant toilet.
Except we can't give them a flush and be done with them.
If they want to smoke make them wear a bag over their head to do so.
At least the only person they would be hurting is themselves.
If you don't like people's comments then quit smoking.

there should be a ban of smoking in beaches. theyre crowded to the dick with people of all ages and its harmful to those around it. so if you're a smoker, shut your hole and go find another damn place to smoke. its not like there's a ban to smoke on the street. you have 90% of the earth to smoke and 10% of the places where you can't. so quit your bitching and take a little walk you lazy bastards.

Well thanx. Your helping me by using your spell check for me. keep it up and one day you'll be as "somewhat educated" as i am. What would folks like you do without the help of your spell check?
other then come to realize your no brighter then the rest of us. But if it makes you feel smart then i say use it. people like yourself need all the help they can get.

The beaches in Costa Rica are beautifull, and for the most part empty, Ban the Butt by all means but Plastic is a major problem here it washes down rivers and is dropped off ships and left by tourists, it doesn`t degrade
like paper butts and is unsightly.Keep your beach clean for others to enjoy!

Smoking should definitely be prohibited on beaches. There is no other place where cigarette smoke both (1) travels so well and (2) is more annoying. Since the beach is a "public good," no one can claim an ownership right which entitles him to smoke. Before you say, hey, that guy's OK: I feel the same way about your dog.
Yes Paul keep the dog and the dog turds off the beach AND the stink butts,it kills the fish and other living things...

If it's a private beach, do what you want with it.
Public beach? No smoking.

It's twice the size of the State of Texas , is 200-300 feet deep
and expected to be totally decomposed in 30,000 years.

I don't like looking at the cigarette butts on the beach either. Most of all, I don't like smelling the rank cigarette smoke in the air. It kinda messes up the pleasant ocean breezes.
