    I think that the airport in St. Louis still has a smoking area...

    I dont care even a little bit if you smoke. You know good and well I was talking about you smoking with children in the car with you.

    You are king so you gonna smoke in your car with your kids, even though it almost certainly causes the kids harm? I hope their respiratory problems PLEASE you. Unbelieveable.

Go figure. Anyways I live my life as I choose. If I truly thought that secondhand smoke was something other than bull**** I wouldn't smoke while others were around. I try to be considerate, but on my property and in my vehicles I am king and I do as I please, and smoking pleases me.

    If there is even a off chance it harms you kids, why would you do it? You know it might harm them, it is not like letting them play football or some other important life experience, there is no upside to the risk. It is almost certainly harmful to kids. Knee jerk zealots? You are intentionally harming children, and even when it is pointed out to you, you insist on doing it. Yea, that is rational.

    My parents smoked with me in the car as a kid... and I guarantee you they loved me. I have 1000x as much proof of that as I need. That they had feet of clay and a few faults doesn't change that.


    Now how about we lay off the ridiculous extremes and talk about this like rational persons instead of knee-jerk zealots....

    And thank Christ for that.

    It is not deadly to everyone, so perhaps there are other factors involved.
    Sure, we all knew a guy who knew a guy who lived to a hundred and smoked three packs of cigarettes a day, but it's not exactly the norm. The fact is a person's genetics can give some people near-Wolverine levels of resistance to disease in certain cases. But the science has been in for years: cigarette smoke is a known, deadly carcinogen. This isn't up for debate. If you deny this then you're denying science.

    A common fantasy of smokers. No non-smoker in the car would agree with that.

    What are the laws in Colorado regarding smoking anything in cars with children? I'll go with their wisdom on the issue.

    I'm sure your parents loved you, but it was still ignorant of them to smoke around you when you were a child, unless they were from a time when it wasn't known how bad it is for you. I don't want to make a new law, but I just wish people would practice a little common sense when it comes to their kids. People can still smoke outdoors, even though it isn't always comfortable, at least the child doesn't have to breathe that poison into his/her lungs.

    Of course you can blow marijuana smoke in your child's face all day everyday, even in cars.
