State to profit from pollution



BTW, speaking of beach smoking bans, Hampton doesn’t intend to enforce a smoking ban voted for at the town meeting last March.

Most of the beachfront in Hampton, including Hampton North Beach where we will mostly be going, are state parks and are not under municipal jurisdiction anyway.  The lifeguards at those beaches are state employees.  The two beaches affected by the “ban”, Plaice Cove and Sun Valley, are not part of the state park system. Plaice Cove is actually very beautiful and very close to our property there, but has no toilet facilities so I can’t spend more than a few hours there before I’d have to leave anyway. It’s not guarded either, not that it would matter to me.

Because they are all free, none of the beaches in New Hampshire have police on them checking badges.  There’s no way Hampton is ever going to waste police resources sending cops out tromping out on to the beach because of a report of someone smoking a cigarette.  So the state is not going to pass a law that it knows can’t be enforced.

Can’t wait to get up there.

    That makes too much sense to me. Is this new place called Shangrala? Here in N.J. politicians haphazardly, knee jerkedly enact laws, not really putting any thought into by whom or how they will be enforced. Where are those tent, plastic bag, drone, anti-bully, cell phone Police when you need them? Give me my Liberty, please.

    sorry – smoke stinks inside or out.. your right to smoke does not trump my right to not breathe in your poison.. Also- have you been to the Caribbean lately/EVER??? Plastic is a huge problem.. wake up.. the environment is not a party line issue – we all need clean air and water.
