    It's Illegal

    Where I live it's illegal to smoke in a car that has minors in it. The smoker can be charged and if the smoker is a parent, further investigation by Children's Aid is likely.I find it sad that this isn't the case in other jurisdictions.

    I can't stand when people whine about something they could easily change or control. If you can easily do something about it, why complain?
