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!

As a smoker I agree.
I'd never smoke in the car or house, regardless of wether there are kids or not.
It's disgusting.

while i understand that this COULD be a good law, i think its going to end up doing much more damage than good.

and before anyone jumps down my throat, i dont smoke

whats going to happen if they do see a parent smoking in the car? Fine them? Take there children away? Force them into parenting classes? Send them to jail for thirty days? Take them out back and have the whole town beat them with a few sticks?

I think its a good idea. I used to smoke but even when I smoked like 2 packs a day I wouldnt smoke around children even if I was outside in public, Id move. Its not fair to do that to them and in close quarters like that in an enclosed place its as if they were smoking.

OK is usually behind on these things. Lol, it's been the law here about the same.

They passed that here in mn about a decade ago

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..............
