Smoking ban falls short
July 3, 2008 · Updated 8:45 PM
I would like to express my opinion on this ridiculous attempt to pass a law to curtail second-hand smoking in a vehicle occupied by a driver with a child. I applaud the need to curtail second-hand smoking, but isnt this ridiculous to just point the finger at an automobile to prevent adverse effects?
What about the childs home? Where do children spend the majority of their time? To prevent the adverse effects of second-hand smoking, why dont they make it illegal to sell any nicotine product? Why cant they pass a law to prevent smoking in casinos? Are you that naive to think a non-smoker is not effected by smoke further than 25 feet away?
When I come home after spending a night in the no smoking section of a casino, my clothes linger with the smell of smoke. Are they really trying to help keep people healthy, or are some just answering to money talks?
