The 2nd hand smoke health argument is BS. For some people smoke is just annoying. You non-smokers have some faults, like the way you use a wireless transmitter that overrides the poor slob listening to NPR on 88.1; you hunt for sport; you drive 45 in the fast lane; you pick your teeth at the table; you jaywalk; you clog the toilet; etc.

When I stop seeing people sneaking 20 items through the 15 item or less line at the market, I'll quit smoking. Just quit trying to intimate that smoking is more harmful to others than blasting your car radio with the windows down.

Wow, I'm amazed you guys had time to step away from your medical studies long enough to share your conclusive results with us. I guess you are the only scientists that aren't just trying to pick on the poor downtrodden smoker with baseless studies. Bravo!

Tell me again why it's so important that you smoke? Whose the one whose brainwashed? Talk about drinking the kool-aid...

Yes I smoke in my car. and Yes it is MY FUCKING RIGHT to do what I want. I also dont feed my kids grease and fat 5 times a day. We eat fairly healthy.

Let the barrage begin.
Wow, dude, you are fucking paranoid. So it's your right to be able to smoke. It's also your child's rights to be able to breath. I really do hope that you would take your child's health into consideration before your own.

I for one who is a non smoker and works in a night club where smoking was recently banned will take a big giant shit on the deal of you smokers who think second hand smoke doesn't harm anyone. In the past, waking up the next morning after working my one night a week at the local club, I would be congested to all hell. I would practically cough up a lung every Saturday morning. Soon after the smoking ban, my Saturday morning ailments suddenly went away. You smokers who say that second hand smoke doesn't affect anyone can go fuck yourselves.

Weak argument. Whether it is harmful or not is irrelevant. If smoking is such a big deal to you, why put yourself in the situation? For instance, I hate the smell of crack so I don't work at a crack house. EZ.

It is so simple to avoid smoke in the USA. The only place you will run into heavy smoke (unless you are looking for it) is a bar. So just move your business to a non-smoking bar.

As for micro-managing parents, I think it's a bad idea to start legislating how to raise a child. But let's start w/ banning all fast food for children - a problem that is far more immediate.

That is very different. If you ban fast food for children the industry will be dead. Children ask for fast food, they don't ask for second-hand smoke. Fast food provides nutrients, second-hand smoke doesn't. Fast food is legal for youngsters to eat. Cigarettes are not legal for youngsters. Why would you want to subject your children to something that is illegal for them to use? Do you want me to continue? The first thing that needs to be done (before banning second-hand smoke) is to keep these idiot parents from having children.

What forum is this again? If I wanted something serious and lacking in any laughs I'd listen to Opie & Anthony.

noone in this world has the right to destroy my lungs or anyone elses but their own.

smoking in a public place or even with your children in a car is absolutely despicable and should be punishable by law.

if you think a three year old deserves breathing in your poison/carbon monoxide-filled air, then there is something wrong with you.

I say again...smoking in a confined space with achild is not a good idea....however
1. Why should the gov tell me what I can do in my own car before they clean their own house? Pollution from cars, big buisiness, it seems disingenuos(sp)? To go after a citizen for this when our own government puts more sh*t in the air everyday then we could imagine. I do not condone people who smoke around children I would like a little balance is all....why does the gov target the people first? They say they "care" about the health of our children...I doubt it....I will bet some folks here who are much smarter then me could come up with a million ways our gov hurts our childrens health way more than a we ever could...

A child strapped in a car with their parent smoking doesnt put themselves in that situation. A child is forced to sit and breathe in the smoke from their parents cigarette. Why is it that a smoker should have the right to smoke wherever they want but a child doesnt have the right to breathe smoke free air. Just because you may be addicted doesnt mean you need to torture your child as well.

Lets say secondhand smoke has no side affects. It still stinks and when a small confined area gets filled up with it, it makes it difficult to breathe.

Does anyone else believe there is more dangerous toxins in the air we breath everyday then is in cigarettes...and what about exaust from cars...I think there is more danger in this to children then cig smoke. The government in the last several years has cut back on a ton of measures designed to keep industrial pullotion in check....but a citizin can't smoke aound a child...insane! I'm done...

I applaud this law, however I think it is a shame that the goverment has to step in and protect the health of this countries children because parents dont care. Second hand smoke is a proven carcinogin.

Smoking rates have lowered in the US, but Asthma rates have increased. There needs to be legislation protecting our children from car exhaust. In Japan they are suing the car manufacturers. I think we need to ban cars all together.
