I'm OK with laws which help those who cannot help themselves...unlike helmet laws, but I digress.

Yea, Smoking is great for your health.
Your children should be able to enjoy the full flavor of camel non filters as you close all the doors and windows of your 4 tone primer grey hoopty as it pulls out of the trailerpark

I am not a fan of the gub'ment trying to tell people how to raise their children. Parents shouldn't smoke in the car with kids, or even in the house.


BUT when it comes to smoking in public, that needs to be banned. me off everytime I'm at a restaurant and somebody lights up in the 'smoking' section.

We're freaking INDOORS, you can't wall that chit off!

I grew up with smoking parents and when I was old enough, I gave them an earful. Eventually, I got 'em to stop smoking in the house. Not just when I was home, but period. haha.. at first they figured they could get away with it, but you smokers don't realize how nasty air is that is left behind, and how long it stays that way. I refused to enter the house until they aired it out.

I used to smoke cigs for years and quit.
I now smoke cigars ocasionly but, there is a time and place for everything.

I don't smoke cigars while others are eating but I don't see how someone can tell me not to smoke a cigar at a bar when everyone around me is smoking cigs.

The only issue I have is that most children cannot deffent themselves against parents who choose to smoke infront of their kids.
My wife is guilty of this. (not in the car but, outside)

good... my parents smoked around me when i was young... The lining around my lungs would always get inflamed and it would hurt really bad to breathe. Wish they would have considered my health.

+1! I have serious health problems all linked to my mom smoking around me as a child! So I make an extra effort to keep my son as far away from it as possible because I am affraid that he will develop the same problems!
I hate the gov't sticking the nose in our affairs, but it is a good thing for the children!

I think we can all agree that NOT smoking in confined areas where children are present is a good thing. But, we are talking about another case of "big brother is watching" here. Seriously, what will be next? As brusutstx said above, will they be coming into your home next to see if you are smoking? Let me be clear, I am not a smoker, but I think that these types of laws are an invasion of privacy.

Get ready to see more of these, probably something to do with the June 27th release by the Surgeon General.

http://www.hhs.gov/news/press/2006pres/20060627.html
http://www.surgeongeneral.gov/library/secondhandsmoke/

Children are Hurt by Secondhand Smoke

Secondhand smoke contains more than 250 chemicals known to be toxic or carcinogenic (cancer-causing), including formaldehyde, benzene, vinyl chloride, arsenic, ammonia, and hydrogen cyanide. Children who are exposed to secondhand smoke are inhaling many of the same cancer-causing substances and poisons as smokers.
Health Effects of Secondhand Smoke in Children
Because their bodies are developing, infants and young children are especially vulnerable to the poisons in secondhand smoke.


Both babies whose mothers smoke while pregnant and babies who are exposed to secondhand smoke after birth are more likely to die from sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) than babies who are not exposed to cigarette smoke.


Mothers who are exposed to secondhand smoke while pregnant are more likely to have lower birth weight babies, which makes babies weaker and increases the risk for many health problems.


Babies whose mothers smoke while pregnant or who are exposed to secondhand smoke after birth have weaker lungs than other babies, which increases the risk for many health problems.


Secondhand smoke exposure causes acute lower respiratory infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia in infants and young children.


Secondhand smoke exposure causes children who already have asthma to experience more frequent and severe attacks.


Secondhand smoke exposure causes respiratory symptoms, including cough, phlegm, wheeze, and breathlessness, among school-aged children.


Children exposed to secondhand smoke are at increased risk for ear infections and are more likely to need an operation to insert ear tubes for drainage.


Exposure to Secondhand Smoke Among Children
The Surgeon General has concluded that there is no risk-free level of secondhand smoke exposure. Even brief exposures can be harmful.


On average, children are exposed to more secondhand smoke than nonsmoking adults.


Based on levels of cotinine (a biological marker of secondhand smoke exposure), an estimated 22 million children aged 3-11 years and 18 million youth aged 12-19 years, were exposed to secondhand smoke in the United States in 2000.


Children aged 3-11 years and youth aged 12-19 years are significantly more likely than adults to live in a household with at least one smoker.


Children aged 3-11 years have cotinine levels more than twice as high as nonsmoking adults.


Children who live in homes where smoking is allowed have higher cotinine levels than children who live in homes where smoking is not allowed.

And this is worse than the air the kids are breathing when all these moms/dads are pushing the kids around in strollers downtown?
I agree smoking is bad for you and bad for the children but........there are a LOT of bad things in this world........we're going to pass laws on ALL of them?

Yeah. They're too scared and unwilling to give up the money from the tobacco companies. So rather than regulate/ban the industry, they'd rather create new parenting laws.

but any effort to help prevent it is a good thing, imo. Just because there are worse things in this world that doesn't mean i'm not going to take every precaution to protect my kids.
