    This is ridiculous, if your outside it shouldn't matter.

    It's probably more about litter. It costs the city money to supply butt receptacles, empty them, dispose of the butts and clean up after smokers. Littering laws are ineffective and hard to enforce. Smokers not policing themselves led to this law. They can blame themselves.

    Yeah, but the cups, cans, bottles, dirty diapers, newspaper, paper wrappings, old food, dog **** and used needles are nooooooo problem.

    Hey hey hey, smokers brought this on themselves. As for readers, eaters, drinkers, and pet owners....they'll get theirs soon enough. But it's easier to get people to freak out about smoking than it is about eating McDonald's.

    But in seriousness, the law is retarded. But IMO its not about health or litering. It's about creating another law with another fine so that the government can squeeze more out of ya. More and more and more laws, but we don't really seem to get rid of any old ones. Maybe that's not the best route to take.

    Probably the bottom line truth of any of these stupid ordinances.

    It's more about social engineering a society.

    Of course they are. Someday those items will be banned in public places too. Some already are. Glass bottles were banned on beaches years ago. Was that part of a plan to social engineer?.

    And you see no problem with this? So you'll be able to go to a park, just don't bring any food, drink, diapers, reading material or your dog. Sounds fun.

    Some already are. Glass bottles were banned on beaches years ago. Was that part of a plan to social engineer?.
    What that does is keep families from drinking Snapple while doing nothing to discourage the beer bottles left by the bums overnight.

    No it reduces the amount of broken glass in the sand.
