Ban Smoking on Sarasota County Beaches: Senator Nancy Detert

This petition had 47 supporters

Secondhand smoke is classified as a “known human carcinogen” (cancer-causing agent) by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the US National Toxicology Program, and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a branch of the World Health Organization. Secondhand smoke has been linked to lung cancer. There is also some evidence suggesting it may be linked with childhood leukemia and cancers of the larynx (voice box), pharynx (throat), brain, bladder, rectum, stomach, and breast.
Smoking on Sarasota County beaches needs to be banned; its common sense. Siesta Key Beach (a Sarasota County beach) was nationally ranked #1 in 2011. Now in 2013 the smoking ban has been lifted and is permitted.
