I took this for Karen today as a matter of fact to show her how Vancouver has taken one more step towards stopping people smoking here - they cost a fortune here!  This is an outlet that sells them cheap too.

However, as Ed said, there is big bucks in selling them and I can't see the US clamping down on this any time soon.

We have bylaws here in place that do not allow smoking in any public place, including restaurants, pubs, bars, etc. and even in the the doorway of same. I quit in time to avoid all this.

I have to tell you the strategy worked here with the new by-laws in place, as everyone had to go out in the rain to smoke, and by making them unafforable, it stopped a lot of the kids.  I am not going to stand on a soapbox as a reformed smoker, but I will say that I sure consider myself very lucky I had the willpower to quit, as it was one of the hardest things I have ever done, and I have never regretted it.

As for smoking on a beach - I think there are less and less here, and they are very courteous, as to where they smoke on our beaches.  Like mentioned, if you don't like it - move!
