    I'll be the first (if I can) to step in and say everyone should have the freedom to do any damn fool thing to their own bodies they want. That's not what this thread is about, though.

    I don't think second hand smoke is dangerous, so I'm against this.

    You therefore have no real objection then, to cigarette smoke.

    To me this is a question of one person's rights over another person's rights. Children have rights too and should not be forced to travel in vehicles with adults smoking around them. Since children really have no choice when it comes to whether or not they are traveling in a car, then they should be protected from having adults (who should be more concerned with the child's welfare rather than their own selfish need to smoke, but not all are) smoking around them, an action that is known to be harmful to the health of the child, both short term and long term, despite denial of this.

    That's not legal. The state forces everyone to allow them to see in their car.

    Then don't drive or ride in a car on public roads. Cars have windows, windows are see-through.

    Where your opinion fails is that lungs are not very good filters, so whatever you blow out is nearly just as carcinogenic as what you suck in.

    Well, I guess you can't win everything.
