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. 236 People

    Yes.

    Because if they can't keep themselves from sinking their teeth in candy, what more an intoxicatingly lucsious stick of tobacco and deadly stuff? They'd probably get hooked on the stuff faster than a legal person would.   They make it for 18 years old and above 'coz the...

    Both of my parents smoke,

    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...

    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...
