    You do realize that every ban takes away control from the people and puts that control in the hands of the state, right?

He might be upset about it, but he would still obey the law. And this is how a lot of people are.
    Yup, they don't want to be thrown in jail or have their property stolen. That is kind of why coercion works. Duh.

    Ask them to explain the orange/yellow crap that's all over the inside of car. That is getting into baby's lungs!

    Just how much government intervention and interdiction in our lives are we suppose to tolerate? Gotta draw a line someplace that the government can't cross.

    Meanwhile, in California, I think it's illegal to smoke in your own backyard. So much for your house being your castle.
    Obamacare will make everything the govt want to make illegal, illegal. They will control everything that happens in your home under the guise of healthcare.

    Yes, they should totally make a sequel to Braveheart based on this new law.

    I'm here to say - I can't find fault with this at all, except for wondering why 8 years old is the cut off. Why not 12 or 14? Why 8?

    Who here will defend the right of the adult to subject their child to smoke inside a confined space like a car?
    The cutoff age should be when the person has reached an age where they are no longer obligated (ethically, socially, by force of law) to obey their parents, whatever that age is in their state.

    Then they cannot be compelled to be in the car with the smoking parent, and if they choose to be in the car with the smoking parent, it's on them.

    For a similar reason, a similar "in the presence of" law should also apply to adult use of alcohol and drugs.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

    Yes, I know. One of the primary reasons for my position of opposition to it. Far too much government control and potential abuse of power.

    How do you know that I am not science-y, and in fact did not turn to the web.

    Hmm?
