    True, but they don't have the right to subjugate others to their terrible life threatening habit at all...

    The depth of medical issues that people face due to second hand smoke, as well as the medical costs to individuals as well as our nation, is so extreme that if we eliminated all people that died from second hand smoke the issue would still be staggering. Truly you still need to do some research in order to appreciate the gravity of the issue.

Fortunately, my parents allowed it and I lived close enough to both my schools and the public library to pull it off. Not everyone is so fortunate.
    It always pissed me off when smokers would light up during our meets and/or matches... disgusting.

    Re: Smoking in Cars

    My car? My Rights! If I own something? I should be able to smoke cigs (which is LEGAL!) anytime I want without having to do to anything. The Car is MINE.

    Having said that? Of course I am gonna at least crack a window in the Winter if some little brat is in my car

    Re: Smoking in Cars

    I'm torn on this. If a person is pro-life (which means you want to protect the life of someone who can't defend themself) wouldn't you want this ban? What choice does the kid have other than to be subjected to the smoke of his/her irresponsible parent(s)? It's not like the kid can just get out of the car and walk or something. Whose liberty is more important? The older citizen who has the right to kill themself slowly or the young citizen who has no choice but to be subjected to the older citizens irresponsibility? I think liberty has its limits. When liberty becomes harmful to a person who has no other choice but to be subjected to said name "liberty", it ceases to be liberty and turns into oppression and tyranny.

    Btw, is Arkansas wants to establish this, they have every right to do it. It's their state.

    Being in the car at all is more dangerous than second hand smoke. By a country mile.
