Streetalk: Wouldn't Atlanta be a lot cleaner if you didn't throw your cigarette butts everywhere?

Adam: The streets wouldn’t be any cleaner anyway. People throw McDonald’s cups and beer cans. If you want to be clean, you need to hire more people to clean streets. People throwing cigarette butts on the street is like spitting in the ocean. It’s not a good idea to do but there’s a lot more problems. There’s going to be cigarette butts. I think we can deal with it. Move out to rural Georgia if you don’t want cigarette butts.

Jessica: I just don’t care. We’re not allowed to smoke inside. We can’t throw them in the trash ’cause you don’t want to light the trash can on fire. So what else are you going to do? They pay people to sweep the streets. I’m boosting the economy. I throw them out of my car. No one has ever said anything, but I’m kind of waiting for the day somebody does, so I can say “screw you” and drive on.

Mike: I don’t litter. Some birds think they’re worms and eat them. It kills the birds. I see no reason to kill something unless I’m going to eat it. I have no interest in eating blue jays. And I smoke organic cigarettes with filters that break down into the soil, unlike some other cigarettes, where the filter will stick around for a very long time. Unless you throw your butts into the ocean. Then they will dissolve within two weeks.
