If youre planning on heading up to the Cape Cod beaches this summer, leave your cigarettes at home. Massachusetts recently passed legislation banning smoking in all lifeguard-protected areas beginning June 19.
The new smoking prohibition results from a number of complaints from visitors who have been affected by secondhand smoke in public areas, NBC News reports.
The smoking prohibition is the result of a number of complaints from visitors who have been affected by second-hand smoke on the guarded beaches, park superintendent George Price, said in an issued statement.
Price added that cigarettes on beaches are not only a health concern but also an environmental concern, as they prove very difficult to clean up. Cigarette butts can often become buried in sand before they can be properly disposed of, and thus cause much extra work for beach staff.

So now they’re banning smoking on Bitc#es?
amazing isn’t it ?
apparently it was ok if your last name began with K and ended in Y
It’s a résumé enhancer.
Anyone been up there lately or spoken to someone who has.
Evidently the homosexuals go at it in the open between the dunes.
So, sodomy on the beach is ok and doesn’t affect anyone. But light up a cigarette, and that’s a problem.
is that called “dune buggery” ?
Remember, if you ever talk to a Greenie Lib and they go off about Three Mile Island, ask them how many people died in the accident. After they guess 10 to 100, give them a hint.
Hint: One less than died in Ted Kennedy’s Oldsmobile.
I wonder if they also banned “E-Cigarettes”?
My daughter attends American University in Washington DC, and recently they banned all smoking on campus (outdoors), to include E-Cigarettes.
Trust me...as a lifelong resident of this filthy state I guarantee that this ban won’t apply to “medical” marijuana of to the oppressed members of the LBGTAHGTRE community.
welllll, to be fair they're also worried about cheese being made with wood.
So the perpetually offended are upset about maybe smelling tobacco smoke driven by an onshore wind, but,rump rangers practicing their craft is OK?
But it is OK to smoke the boloney pony.
Okay to grind the stub into the a--tray too.
In MA, the answer to "Do you smoke after sex (of any type)?" will no longer need to be asked.
Ha! More like visual assault to anyone who happens to witness it.
