    True, IMO, absolutely true.
    The trouble is, love cannot be legislated.
    Or, am I wrong and ignorance is the problem...which also cannot be legal/illegal.
    Education is the answer, and this CAN be improved by the law-makers.

    Sometimes people think regulations passed, regardless of implementation are good. I am not among them, unless in the future we can get enforcement later on. With regard to smoking regulations, I am generally opposed.

    Cigarettes have hundreds of different chemicals, some of which are carcinogenic.

Common sense tells me polluted cities like LA can cause much worse symptoms since it's in the air the child breaths every day all day - inside our out.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Jesus... MORE lawmakers making yet MORE laws? There's gotta be a different solution.

    They have tiny little bodies, and being in a confined area with all that smoke cannot be good for them, and that is something that can be controlled, whereas what is in the area cannot, at least not by the parents/guardians of said child/children.

    Smoking in general doesn't bother me that much, although I do think it's smelly, so I am not for regulations with regards to adults smoking, but some people just show no common sense when it comes to exposing their child to smoke, and that's a shame. The way it sticks to everything and smells everything (including your baby!!) should be a clue that it's pretty bad to do it in an enclosed space like that.

    I think many smokers are god damned selfish morons who are too stupid to know what they're doing to themselves and too pig-headed and arrogant to understand what they may be doing to others.

    I grew up with a smoking father. Cigars and pipes. I smoked as a late teen and early 20-something.

    Then I quit for good.

    I wonder how may people here objecting to this new ban are parents of small children, or just smokers without kids who are getting more and more butt-hurt over the growing public objection to their deadly and filthy habit?

    Odd how we are so quick to crack down on Tobacco, and yet the movement is in favor of marijuana.

    In the meantime, in defense of honesty and consistency, let me know when the banners agree that we also need to ban children below the age of 8 from living in Los Angeles.

    it can if you make it illegal........
