    This is a tough one. While I hate government intervention, smoking in a small confined space such as a vehicle is SO bad for the kids!

    Oh, and that's happened already, too!

    It's grossly disgusting.

    Subjecting small children to a very confined space, and a cancerous airborne substance is borderline abusive.

    This isn't about YOUR right to smoke, it'a about small childrens rights to not be subjected to YOUR smoke.

    Would you hand your small child a cigarette and allow them to smoke it?

    Sure, why not.

    Not just cancer, studies indicate secondhand smoke causes respiratory problems for the rest of their lives.

    I responded other for a simple reason - I fully agree that people who insist on smoking shouldn't do so in the presence of children, particularly when those children have no way to escape second hand smoke. I object, however, to the government micromanaging citizen use of a legal product. People, unfortunately, aren't always smart enough to do what's right. However, tobacco products have been proven, beyond a doubt, to be a significant cause of many cancers and the cause of untold deaths. I find it incredible that government continues to legalize a known killer solely because it produces significant tax revenue. They quickly take other known carcinogens out of circulation - but those don't bring $billions into government coffers.

    So what is the answer? Ban nicotine products?

    I look at it this way - if you want to kill yourself, who am I to stop you.
    If you want to take your children with you, then we have a problem.

    Seems logical and reasonable to protect kids from the blatant and astronomical ignorance of their parents - when possible.
