Smoking ban on beaches should also apply to Maui

The mayor of Honolulu, Kirk Caldwell, is promising to sign a bill to ban smoking at Oahu’s beaches.

It would be so great if Maui could jump into the bandwagon and get the ball rolling to pass the legal review that needs to be done before signing the bill.

This is a very important matter to our environment and it’s about time we do something about all the cigarette butts in the sand and the air pollution caused by smokers that have no regard for the kids and nonsmokers at the beach.
