I'm no tree hugger and I'm even more upset at the illogical marine discharge laws (meaning the prohibition of dumping in harbors makes sense, but there is no science to the 3 mile limit for what amounts to a gallon of actual waste). However, I can't deny that human waste has both bacteria and chemicals that are a larger issue than a bear crapping berries in the woods.
it's not illegocial.. it keeps it from washing up on the beaches. Remember the Candybar incident in Caddyshack?

It also gives the idiots a target to shoot for, otherwise they -would- be dumping their tanks just off of the beaches (most likely because they would think it is funny)
