A law I actually agree with!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Here in Connecticut they are trying to pass a law that makes it illegal to smoke cigarettes in a car with children in car seats. Sorry I don't have a link though. I really hope it goes through. It's about time!

I think it's a great idea - and I'm a smoker. I don't smoke in my car (even when the kids aren't with me) and I never smoke in the house, even in these BRUTAL winters.

As a smoker I would support this law 100% in my state. 


Quoting KerryK:

In California it is illegal to smoke with anyone under 16 in the car.

I don't think that people should smoke in the car with kids at all.

What about the child's right to not have long cancer or lung disease or asthma or other breathing problems because of second hand smoke?

While I agree it is bad to smoke in the car with children; I have to disagree with this law.  It is once again infringing on our rights to "choose".  Here in Oklahoma they are trying to take our choice away for smoking in public places, such as bars, parks, ect.  I do not smoke, however when I take my children to the park they do not just randomly go up to people who are smoking and stay near them..............

My Mom smoked in the car with us, she also smoked with both her pregnancies.  We were not low birthweight at all.  We do not have breathing issues, ect.  It was my Mom's choice to have us and it was her choice to smoke around us and in the car.  It was my choice to not smoke.  My children can make that choice for themselves.  Everyone makes unhealthy choices daily.  Such as junk food, ect.  Should be rid our houses of junk food if we have children?  Remember there is an epidemic of child obesity............

And children should have the right to a healthy life! In a perfect world parents would be smart enough to choose their children's health over their own stupidity... But they don't!

I have none of those diseases.  If I were to get one of those I would not blame my Mom at all.  There is so much shit in the air already.  For crying out loud you can get Cancer from eating hot dogs.
