Representative Gruters in Florida has decided to push for a Bill (SB 218) that will prohibit and fine anyone caught smoking tobacco on public beaches in the state of Florida. This is a violation of citizens freedoms. Whether you are a smoker or not, taking away the freedoms of any US Citizen is unconstitutional and should not be handled lightly. Smoking has already been banned from indoor spaces, which is fine, but to tell someone that they are not allowed to smoke outside on a beach is pushing it a little too far.

This Bill states, "Prohibiting the smoking of tobacco on public beaches; providing civil penalties; authorizing a law enforcement officer to issue a citation" but nowhere does it say banning the use of Vapes or Medical Marijuana. Why are the tobacco users being targeted? Isn't it bad enough that taxes always get raised on tobacco products but not alcohol or any other substance that causes more deaths in the population?

US Citizens rights such as smoking should not be bothered. There are far worse things going on in our state and country that needs to be repaired.
