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. 297 People

    also my older brother, grandfather and many of my uncles and other family. And it sucks. I hate smoke. I get dizzy and sick, it's awful. The worst thing is that i grew up in this smoke, my lungs are probably black and rotten. And I did mot choose this. I can't sit around with...
