I was trying to traceroute from my PC to 8.8.8.8 and it did not work. I can ping 8.8.8.8. Between my PC and 8.8.8.8 is the access switch and the Cisco ASA. Is it possible that the ASA block traceroute? If yes, how do I fix it. I need to allow some of my users to do traceroute.

Tracerout may be  need to be permitted from Asa firewall see this article from the vendor http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/security/pix-500-series-security-appliances/15246-31.html

Your ASA is blocking the ICMP TTL exceeded messages that are being sent from outside your network.

Find the ACL that is controlling inbound traffic and add a line like this:

access-list <ACL name> extended permit icmp any interface <outside interface name> time-exceeded

You need to add the "decrement-ttl" in the service policy.

My recommendation is to edit your default class for the service policy like below and have that only decrement the TTL.  This should fix your problems:

policy-map global_policy
class class-default
set connection decrement-ttl

Rather than using policy-map, will this work, access-list <ACL name> extended permit icmp any interface <outside interface name> time-exceeded ?

You would perhaps need both (I have no idea how your access list is currently structured) but most ASA firewalls do not automatically decrement the TTL, which is why you require that command in the policy map (no way around it, it is required if you want the traceroute).
