    Default Why do Smokers litter?

    Can someone please explain to me why so many smokers find it perfectly acceptable to toss their butts on the ground?

    I'm a very green person and I have to say this drives me nuts as well.

    I won't let anything of mine touch the ground regardless of the size.

    because .
    a) littering kicks ass.
    b) The city you live in is already hard to look at as is.
    c) looks so cool (reference: Pat Smear on Nirvana's Much LIVE+LOUD)
    d) you're not doing anything for the environment

    Coachella should set up mass ash trays throughout the event and ask people who are recycling water bottles to sew a Coachella quilt from all of the butts.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    The only time I smoke is outside at school right next to the ashtray. And in a bar, next to an ash tray. Oh yeah and at Coachella - where I will slobber all over my finished cigarette butt and place it in the nearest trash receptacle, so as not to be called a jerk. I really do give a shit about the environment. I recycle and drive a fuel efficient car!

    you guys are right... the rest of the festival is so damn clean!

    Oh wait... I almost forgot about the overflowing garbages and the shit streaming out of the full port-a-potties.

    Damn smokers.... they are evil.

    So then what about the freeways, roads, parks, beach, parking lot, landscaping, lake, gutters, ocean, and all the other places that seamingly are clean? Just because 60K people aren't clean for 3 days makes it OK for you to throw your ashes and butts all over the rest of the world the rest of the year?

    I smoke, and I don't EVER litter ANYTHING, and I generally pick up other people's litter whenever I come across it. But fuck you very much for the presumption, you sanctimonious ass.

    Oh, and the thousands of people who aren't clean for those three days are not likely to suddenly become clean the rest of the year. Any day of the year, anywhere I am, I will find more pieces of other trash than I will cigarette butts. Find a soapbox that makes sense.

    People who "care" about the environment pretty much includes everyone. The majority of people under 50 understand that air pollution is having an effect on air quality. I think most people agree that air quality is a concern, and global warming is a concern.

    However, people who claim they care about the environment by not littering inspite of the fact that the only real problem is the tons+tons of toxic shit getting into our atmosphere should either stop driving a car, or shut up.

    A ciggartte butt lying on the side of the road (Which is already litter+toxic on 'mother earth' to begin with) is no fucking big deal and you're a hippie/ignorant if you think otherwise

    There are not billions of cigarettes on the side of the road. Which you would know, if you ever got out of your CAR.

    I smoke unfiltered so there is no filter mess to deal with just natural tobacco to biodegrade and return to earth.

    it doesn't effect the environment. it's not as if they will be left there. it's just a pain in the ass for the person who has to pick them all up.

    its called pollution you irresponsible little pricks, i somehow doubt you'd understand the concept when you can't even understand the label warnings of these expensive, useless and addictive poisons you continue to inhale.

    smoke pot instead. =)

    I never said it was a big deal when comparing it with air pollution and having that frame of mind doesn't help. It's pretty disgusting when you're on the grass and realize your sitting on a pile of cigarette butts, or leaving a building and seeing hundreds of them scattered in front of you.
    There are lots of smokers who do put them in ashtrays, but for the ones who dont -STOP FUCKING UP!!!!

    and fuck off, i'm not a hippy
