    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...

    My parents would smoke with me in the car with

    all the windows rolled up, it was disgusted and could barely breath. I don't think it's fair to subject children to cigarette smoke, it's their lives and they should be protected. As an adult, you should curb your cravings and do what's expected of you as a parent.

    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...

    Yes

    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.

    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...
