    But wouldn't the venturi effect just get rid of all the smog too? I mean, just look at these equations...

    Are there really people who would defend their right to smoke in a small closed environment with children? I cant beleive someone would really want to do it to start with, but defend it?

    Minivans and SUVs aren't exactly confined spaces. Put the kids in the back of the Excursion and smoke way up there in the front.

    Like I said before this law this law doesn't accomplish anything. Furthermore people should be fighting for their rights. The government should not have the power to decide what you can and cannot do on or in your own property. This mindset that so many people seem to have that the government should be controlling every aspect of our lives is pathetic.

    The Santa Anna winds were your venturi for many years. Still are.

    No doubt. Also now that the cat is out of the bag, the government will be soon be determining many other things that can't be done inside ones private home.

    I'm sure butter, and other cooking ingredients are on the short list of future illegal substances that can be used in one's home.

    I wonder what type of air fresheners will be allowed?

    That works. You could also exhale away from the kids while smoking in the car.
