Wednesday, June 28, 2006 | Let’s do the math: Fifteen percent of San Diego County residents smoke, generating 1.8 billion cigarette butts annually. That’s enough tobacco litter to fill Sea World’s Shamu Stadium and Lagoon, to the brim, each and every year.
With our environment under siege from this barrage of toxic tobacco litter, it makes perfect sense for the San Diego City Council to declare local parks and beaches as smoke-free.
