A couple of days ago Jasmina and I were picking up cigarette butts and other litter around Lincoln and Rose in Venice. It's a heavy traffic area so there are plenty of littered cigarettes. We collected a nice size bag. Towards the end of our pickup a homeless man approuched us to let us know we were taking away his and other homeless peoples cigarettes. When they are littered and if there is any tobacco left then those butts get picked up and smoked he explained. We had not thought of that and apologized for taking them away. He appreciated that we were trying to keep them from being washed down the storm drains and dumped into the ocean. We made an agreement with him. If the cigarette is not wet, filthy dirty and has tobacco left we will leave them near a garbage can where they can be used up and enjoyed. He was cool with that.
