The debate over banning smoking on the beach and in resort towns has been growing along the coast.

A cleanup initiative on Delaware's Rehoboth Beach picked up more than 7,000 cigarettes in just one block. Now it's kick-started a campaign to ban smoking altogether in the southern Delaware resort. Coastal reporter Bryan Russo talks with Rebecca Sheir about how resorts up and down the coast are all considering smoking bans in one way or another.
