No, I'm saying by the time a problem comes about whatever evidence left behind by their parents activities will be long gone. It wouldn't even matter if it wasn't gone since you still couldn't show that it came about because of their parents smoking.
I disagree. I believe in preponderance of evidence, which could easily be applied.
So you know you can't prove cause and effect and you want to go ahead anyway.
This isn't new territory. There have been countless class action lawsuits whereby factories have been found guilty of reckless endangerment through exposing its workers or citizens to pollutants when those people got cancer.
Some people will obey the law just because its the law. Some will I supposed be ticketed if seen smoking with kids in the car. Beyond that, it adds to the conversation that exposing others to second hand smoke is selfish and unhealthy and is yet one more step in a positive direction.
Just because something is unhealthy or selfish doesnt mean it should be illegal. To me this isn't a question of should people smoke around others, but rather the government over stepping. Just because something is good for you, or bad for you doesn't mean the government should be able to force it upon you.
