    I live in seashore area, and this question often leads to heated debate. While everyone appreciates trash cans and lifeguards, how much control should municipalities have on this vast area of public land? Several towns have enacted alcohol bans, smoking bans, eating bans, limited access and hours, etc. And now L.A. says "No balls".

    From what I understand, ownership of beach property only extends to the high tide line below that line there are no property rights.

    So just stay below the high tide line and you can eat and smoke all you want

    Interesting. I did not know that. Cape May has been trying to institute a smoking ban. I'll be sure to let my smoking buddies know.

    God owns the beach.

    We humans merely have a tenancy at will.

    Since the people of L.A. tend towards having the intellectual capacity of a peanut, they really need to be told how to live. Liberals are very good at telling others how to live - for their own good, you understand.

    They'd have to pay me to live in CA again. I have too much money to go back. :lol:

    Well this is California so I'm not the least bit surprised by this. I would never live in that hell hole of a state.

    I'd love to visit California, if it didn't have so many Californians there.
