    “SMOKING in cars with children will be banned and school playgrounds will become smoke-free under new Victorian laws expected to be revealed today.”

    Good. That pisses me off when I see it. The kid didn’t ask to smoke.

    it’s the most retarded thing to ban smoking in someone’s car. it’s the person’s decision to smoke or not! they can make bad decisions if they wish. and trust me, the kids will be FINE. second hand smoke isn’t as big a deal as we all make it out to be, and neither is the whole marijuana freak-out.

    Despite conclusive linking of long-term smoke exposure with debilitating chronic respiratory illness, it should be okay to impose those risks on somebody else sharing the same airspace. That’s an odd sentiment, Lena.
