Yes, I’m very concerned about smokers setting all that sand and those oceans on fire. Clearly a major problem. Perhaps we should transfer spending over from basic health care for poor people and rebuilding the slums in Camden and Newark to this effort? And then we can ban casinos — an obvious source of impoverishment for our poor — and cover the losses with a modest property tax hike for the state … not much, maybe just 50% or so?
Will there be special provisions built into the law to make sure that smokers are especially targeted for litter? I wouldn’t want to see some poor soul who’s dumping some old tires, abandoned autos, fast food wrappings, newspapers etc, get hit with the same fines as someone who taps an ash off the end of their cigarette!
As for secondhand smoke — definitely a concern, particularly right after cars are banned — which is something we need to do YESTERDAY!
Yep, NJ can be a Garden State with a little bit of effort. Oh! One final note: we need to get rid of the unseen, odorless, but nonetheless unarguably deadly ethyl alcohol fumes — a Class A Carcinogen the same as tobacco smoke — from NJ restaurants!

Odd. No idea why that would have popped up! LOL! It’s not something I’d ordinarily send in!
