    I disagree. I believe in preponderance of evidence, which could easily be applied.

    Oh really? Lets assume that damage was done and you desire to figure out exactly how it happened. How are you going to do that? Good luck with that.

    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.

    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.

    Why are you shifting attention away from the topic? People get sued, fined and arrested for all kinds of things. Big whoop. Can you show a connection or not? If not, what the **** are you doing?
