    I'm talking about normal situations. These situations you are referring to are certainly not the norm. This is a completely different topic.

    You thinks it's perfectly safe, 100% harmless, and not in the least bit ignorant or unintelligent to strap a small child into a car seat, get in the car, and light up a cigarette or two while driving around.

    You've done this. You do this. You'll continue to do it in the future.

    Yeah, and they told us for 40 years that hormone replacement therapy protected women from heart disease and other ailments, but then oops, sorry about that..... Do you want them to ban bacon because there is solid evidence that it contributes to heart disease and strokes? Do you want them to ban sugar because there is solid evidence that it contributes to obesity and diabetes? Government intervention is a slippery slope.....

    HRT is also linked to ovarian cancer and strokes. Everything has a down side. In any case, it's obvious that more government intervention is not the answer.

    Look, I have to go by personal experience and observation...My parents were raised in a smoking household, as was I, my children and my children's children...Nobody has asthma, cancer or a respiratory illness....I take all medical studies with a grain of salt...There are many factors that contribute to such illnesses. Smoking may or may not be "one" of these factors...

    You must be speaking about your opinion on this issue.

    Yes. Normally children are not removed from the home without some kind of evidence. The scenarios you are talking about are not the normal. I don't know what is going on there, but that is not how it works in my state.
