As I write, Hawaii’s legislature is considering banning smoking on famous Waikiki Beach. The bill, which is expected to pass, will take effect immediately.
The law is designed to keep cigarette butts off of the beach, while still allowing smoking on nearby sidewalks.
Waikiki beach has been through a significant transformation in recent years and is being restored into a beautiful and magical place once again. Keeping it clean and in top condition is a priority for the City and County of Honolulu. When staying nearby, I’ve often hear sounds of of the beach being cleaned during the night. They are doing a great job.
What’s your opinion? Let us know if you think the smoking ban is a good idea.
