    To your second statement, okay, so we basically agree then. If you want to argue about the banning, then do that, but it really doesn't help anyone to argue from the perspective that secondhand smoke in a small enclosed space is not going to be harmful to a baby or small child's lungs. There is clear evidence that it can and does effect their health in a negative way.

    I realize that you can't ban stupidity.

    Rather presumptuous to assume that any parent that smokes is a weak person and a bad person.
    Any CDC studies on that?

    A lot of people, unfortunately, can't play nice with other people, and do in fact require laws to control their behavior.

    It is subjective.

    Bad parenting.

    It will not absolutely be harmful because it won't always get inhaled by them, although it usually will be harmful if they inhale it (and usually more than once).

    Except laws do not stop what they ban.

    Well you and I will have to agree to disagree on the banning issue. I think it is unenforceable and a waste of time, money and human resources.

    Ah, but the state will make more money off these douchenozzles, and that's something I'm absolutely fine with.

    I'm completely happy with smokers in cars with children losing money. Personally, I'd like to see all that money go to a fund for children's education or something equally positive.

    They're drug addicts, and nobody can twist logic to rationalize their behavior quite like a drug addict.
