I Think Smoking Around Children Should Be Illegal

So many life long affictions are caused by thoughtless adults poisoning children with passive smoking - it's not fair & it's not right. 195 People

    This Should Be a No-brainer

    I have a close friend, recently divorced, who is dealing with this issue regarding her two toddlers. They got back from a visit with their father, who smokes, and their mother took them out of town for a long-planned family event. They were unable to...

    I do think smoking around children should be illegal, as should be smoking while you are pregnant. I am a smoker, but I do not smoke around children at all.

    Smoking Should Be Illegal In General..

       Seriously. I cannot stand when other people smoke around me, especially when they don't even care that they are doing it! Just because you choose to inhale such toxins, doesn't mean I would like to! If I wanted to, I would smoke myself. But, obviously, I do not...
