San Diego Beach Alcohol Ban Might Appear on November Ballot

The beaches in San Diego, Calif., have been dry since a one year test alcohol ban was imposed. Now some city officials think voters should get a voice in the matter.

A proposal has been floated to add a question to the Nov. 4 ballot regarding the ban. Proponents say the beaches should be reopened to alcohol. They claim that if police enforced laws regarding public intoxication and rowdy behavior that the ban would be unnecessary.

A group calling itself SafeBeaches.org thinks the ban should stay in place. The move to ban alcohol at beach parks began after several publicized fights on the beaches.

Let's hope so. We've been really hurting down here in San Diego. Life is tough when you can't enjoy a nice cool beer on a hot summer day at the beach. Shouldn't be able to punish everyone for the actions of a few.
Especially since most problems come from visitors.
