    I am shocked someone wants to smoke around their kids. Unbeliveable. Why would you want to do that if there was even an off chance?

    Bad parenting is common.

    Dude - shooting a gun up into the air isn't always dangerous or deadly - so you advocate such things at parties and celebrations?

    First off, that happens already.

    There is a difference between supporting something happening, and not supporting state intervention. The fact that I do not support state intervention into this does not mean I want it to happen. Plus state intervention does not eliminate what they are intervening in.

    CDC - Fact Sheet - Secondhand Smoke Facts - Smoking & Tobacco Use

    In children, secondhand smoke causes the following:3
    Ear infections
    More frequent and severe asthma attacks
    Respiratory symptoms (e.g., coughing, sneezing, shortness of breath)
    Respiratory infections (i.e., bronchitis, pneumonia)
    A greater risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)

    In children aged 18 months or younger, secondhand smoke exposure is responsible for—4
    An estimated 150,000–300,000 new cases of bronchitis and pneumonia annually
    Approximately 7,500–15,000 hospitalizations annually in the United States

    Which part says that smoking is always harmful to non-smokers that are somehow near them? This is about actually inhaling the smoke, which study proves that smoke is always inhaled?

    There are some things if you have to tell people, telling them wont help.

    Really? If you have your infant child in your car and you are smoking, do you seriously think it isn't going to affect your baby in some way? And with all we know about the special ingredients in cigarettes, don't you think it's dumb to take that kind of risk.

    I'm not for the banning of it, but I am for the education of ignorant people who do these things. It's really stupid, can be avoided and when babies DO get sick from it, it costs everyone in the long run.

    Will the smoke always get to them?

    It is stupid to smoke, and for weak people. Bad parents are often weak people.
