LET Why do some smokers litter?

I mostly appreciated Greg Sellnow's Saturday musings on why some smokers litter their cigarette butts.

I, too, have long wondered why this particular subset of smokers litters. I've been in many a roadside volunteer cleanup crew and often there are few trash items besides the cigarette butts, which are small and hard to pick up. The rain and snow embed them in the weeds, so usually half of them are just left there, deemed too hard to pick out. At least that's what my children and I do. Kudos to you if you pick them all up! But you shouldn't have to.

Please publish responses from smokers on why those that litter do so. And please encourage Mr. Sellnow to do some reporting -- find litterers and interview them and follow up with the response.
