While congratulating my Home State of Hawaii on raising the Minimum Smoking Age to 21, I think I have a Way to get Cigarette Butts off our Streets, Beaches, and Parks by having the Tobacco Companies RECYCLE them

BLOGPOST #1,947 AT THE AICP-END

Imagine if we could recycle cigarette butts
Kula, HI, 03-21-2016 Monday: Goodie for us, we are the first state to raise the age of smoking back to 21; however, I doubt that anyone who wants to smoke will be unable to find cigarettes.  Still, we feel good about protecting the youth and attempting to imbue people with a new sense of purpose in caring for their lives. 
Unfortunately, not everyone is open to this type of social engineering as many of the various Asian folks living here love to smoke and buy loads of tobacco products.  Cigarette butts litter many parts of the island and I would say that if we want to conserve the beauty of the fiftieth state, then maybe we should find another way either to prohibit smoking. 
We could accomplish such an undertaking by outlawing tobacco altogether or finding a cheaper alternative for caring for those who choose to smoke the nasty things.  
Here is my proposal for cleaning up the Hawaiian environment
I have a grand proposal for how to clean up the litter associated with smoking cigarettes and it would rehabilitate the well-worn images of the tobacco companies.  Our big problem here in Hawaii is similar to what one finds anywhere else and that is litter. 
Locals always tend to pick up their trash and we do not have mounds of trash from one end of each island to the other.  However, the visitors who come here, namely the tourists, tend to leave far more litter than we locals do and one can see it along the sandy beaches, on the streets in Kahului, Lahaina, and Wailuku towns. 
People throw their cigarette butts down and stamp them out on the street just as they do on the mainland.  It would be great if there were a way to prohibit this type of laziness, as that is precisely what it is.    
Imagine if the battered tobacco companies had a way to rehabilitate their images in the eyes of the people
The big tobacco companies have continual black eyes as people complain and bitch at them while demanding they help fund the costs of treating those with illnesses caused by long-term smoking. 
Do not get me wrong, we are accomplishing great things among the young folks, education is the key to preventing any negative behavior; however, when the young ones go home to mom and dad and their parents and grandparents sit there puffing smokes around the lanai while drinking beer, what do we tell them? 
That what your folks and grandparents do is wrong?  That does not always mean anything to them because here in the islands we revere our elders so it is difficult to criticize them.   
We must change negative long-term behaviors
That is the problem, I guess, people with long-term, negative behaviors, must either see the light for themselves or they must take their behaviors when they move onto the next realm and receive God-given purification. 
As for the children, on the other hand, here is a great idea: strike a bargain to better the world with the tobacco companies and fight litter at the same time.  I think that if we could create something such as this, the tobacco companies could become positive forces for change in at least Hawaii but I hope on the mainland and even around the world. 
We would do this in two ways, the first being the ‘recycling of cigarette waste—namely discarded cigarette butts—and then starting major educational initiatives such as funding scholarships for children who lose a parent to tobacco-related illnesses.     
Chef Lilah ‘no pupule girl’
Okay, you say to me, “Chef Lilah, you once crazy wahine, girl, who gonna pay for disgusting old cigarette butts?”  
Here is how it works: the tobacco companies need to set a price per pound of cigarette butts turned in at recycling centers, say, $4.00 per pound of nasty butts.  One pound of butts is quite a bit and the four-dollar payout would not be that harsh for the big tobacco companies and if they could find some sort of way to use them in a beneficial way, that would be even better.  Perhaps they could sanitize them and transform them into wadding for insulation or for packing ammunition for the U.S. military.
People—especially the young keiki—would go about scouring the streets, the beaches, and the wild country seeking butts.  The four dollars would buy them all sorts of good treats to eat and they could bank it for future educational needs. 
In fact, maybe the tobacco companies could find a way to establish the educational scholarships by starting accounts for each child bringing in bags full of butts.
Am I ‘lolo’—no, I do not think so
Again, you all think I am as lolo as they come but here is the deal: in this age of digitization of information and the compiling of it, why would it be that difficult for children to set up accounts with their parents’ help? 
Once they turn in a bag full of butts, put in their username and password at the recycle center, hand over the butts and the money goes into the account as a credit. 
This would get butts off the streets, off the beaches, and out of the parks faster than the Department Environmental Services (ENV) and city, county, or state workers charged with keeping the state clean pick them up. 
Then, the tobacco companies would become heroes because they would take the butts from the tobacco recycler to wherever they would destroy or process them while putting money into the accounts of the young people as well as into a fund to help those afflicted with diseases caused by their products.    
My idea would be a ‘win-win’ for everyone
In the end, this would be a win-win for everyone because it would clean up our streets while providing educational funds for the young people of Hawaii and perhaps one day the nation. 
Yes, it sounds crazy but all great ideas sound that way until someone actually takes the time and effort to initiate the process of moving the ball forward.  I think that once people realize that “there might be gold in them-there butts, pilgrim,” we might see a cleaner state and nation. 
Besides, when the butts enter the ocean surrounding our magnificent Hawaiian Islands, the filth and the poisons leeching out of them go into the sparkling blue waters polluting everything.  It harms sea life, it damages the pristine beauty that brings us loads of tourist dollars every year, and it reflects poorly upon us as a mutual community of highly GREEN people. 
I hope the big tobacco conglomerates consider my idea
I hope RJ Reynolds, Philip Morris USA, Lorillard, and the other big tobacco companies read this post and consider it. 
They reap such enormous profits that to me, at least, it would be a drop in their bucket of profitable income.  Our world would become a better place as the old smokers slowly leave this realm and move into the next, our children become more enlightened, and our state and country and possibly the world becomes a much cleaner place. 
Imagine if that was so, how much better the lives of everyone would be, it is not that pupule, my friends, even though many will dismiss it as such.  It certainly is not a Pakalolo-tainted pipe dream, my friends, please share your thoughts with me and we will debate them throughout the week if you like.  I will see you tomorrow.        
Aloha nui loa!

MORE TO COME FROM THE ROLLING STONES



MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2016
Today, we begin offering albums by one of the all-time greatest bands of rock-and-roll, a band that came to the United States in the British Invasion of 1962-1965, the Rolling StonesBrian Jones (guitars, harmonica, and all other instruments) formed the band with Keith Richard (guitars/vocals), Mick Jagger (vocals/harmonicas), Billy Wyman (bass), Charlie Watts (drums), (and Ian Stewart, the sixth ‘Rolling Stone’ on piano).  The group played a raw rhythm and blues, rock-and-roll style, one that caused fans to go absolutely wild, their performances and music being the exact opposite of the ‘positive sound’ played by the Beatles.  Their first album, entitled, “England’s Newest Hitmakers” (1964) introduced the band to the world as they performed American blues tunes reworked to fit their style as well as Chuck Berry classics.  We urge you to seek this album out at Amazon.com so you can pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that is right for YOU—you will be so glad you did.
