PORTLAND — The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department asked the public to participate in a discussion about whether smoking should be banned on the 362 miles of beaches along the Pacific coastline.

Public meetings were held in Seaside, Newport, Coos Bay and Salem.  The last one was held Thursday night.

It’s still not to late to have your say.  The state wants to hear from you by midnight tonight by email.  Send your comments here.

A ruling is expected before the end of the year.

    Smokers already consider the world their ashtray and the beach is a favorite ashtray. I am so tired of endless toxic cigarette butts on the beach. Yes, let’s keep one part of Oregon clean for everyone.
