One time i saw 3 young women smoking in a car with a baby in a carseat and the windows werent rolled down.A child should not be exposed to those toxins involuntarily,and smokers should think about their children's health,since they dont care about theirs and keep their vehicle smokefree.One more thing,i wish they wouldnt throw their butts out the window,mother earth isnt an ashtray.

I agree. Nothing angers me more than seeing a skank smoking in their car, while their child is in the back seat, usually coughing. They prob spend more money on cigarettes than they do on clothes for their kids. What a bunch of street trash.

How about a bill to make it child abuse to smoke around children under 18 in the house and car, period? You'll finally get my vote!
If smokers really love their off -spring they won't even consider smoking around them. It shoulpd be a crime if they do.

Yes...and let's expand that to those who have a BBQ grill who allow their children near it!

While we are at it...how about removing parental rights from those who feed their children too much fast food?

Come to think of it, red and processed meats are known to cause cancers in numbers SHS could never even approach! Anyone who would feed their child a sausage is a terrible parent...right Candid?

Forget the slippery slope as this is a cliff your kind is trying to push everyone over.

I have a child that comes over from his mother's house every week, stinking like cigarette smoke, coughing and constantly sick, and CPS nor Family court will do a damn thing about it. I even have his Doctors records where they have told her that he is getting sick from the smoke and has allergies, and the dumb b itch just keeps on doing it. WTF? Anyone that is so godd amn stupid that they would continue to smoke around their kids because of their own selfishness, should have their kids removed, and the worthless neglegent parents should be removed from the human race.

You have learned your tactics of demonization and exaggeration well...from the master anti-smoker himself.

"The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation."
Adolf Hitler

You actually don't know anyone who grills or fries meat indoors? Also, the truck you are sitting next to at a stoplight delivers doses of carcinogens in volumes a smoker could never even approach. You are all just a bunch of paranoid control freaks who buy anything you are told by a bunch of collectivist nutcases.

You also ignore the fact that consuming red and processed meats causes cancers in numbers that makes SHS look like the joke that it is. You really are easy to fool with ridiculous exagerations.

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn16824-s...

It gives a new meaning to the phrase "meat is murder": a study of more than half a million Americans has found that consuming steaks, hot dogs and other red and processed meats significantly increased participants' chances of dying during the decade in which they were tracked.

Women who consumed the most red meat – 66 grams (2.3 ounces) per 1000 calories – were roughly 36% more likely to die than women who ate the least red meat – 9.1 grams (0.3 ounces). For men, a similar difference in red meat consumption, upped death rates by 31%.

Holy Cow!

Might we find you on a meat banning thread demanding the removal of children from parents who feed their children this poison, or are you simply a self righteous moral busybody with HUGE double standards?

You health Fascists sure are sickening.

Referring to the SUBJECT of this thread,do you as a smoker,think its ok to smoke in a car with the windows rolled up,and young children in the car with you?This isnt about meat or grills,and i dont know too many people who are BBQing in the snow right now.Referring to the truck blowing out carcinogens,most newer model cars have cabin filters that filter the air before it comes through the vent.I also dont eat a lot of red meat either,but your full of hot air.It must really (s*ck) living in a state that has banned cigs everywhere,poor smoker :D.

You health fascists sure are a bunch of fools with little knowledge of what reality is. You have bought into the Fascistic collectivists non-sence that is only being used to get you used to the all powerful Nanny State.

Nobody I know smokes without cracking the window silly, and once that is done virtually all the smoke is sucked outside.*rolls eyes*

You don't know anyone who fries meats indoors? Seriously? Get real.

Here's a small portion of the toxins that are found from cooking meat. Take note of the fact that they are the same ones found in tobacco smoke.

BENZO(K)FLUORANTHENE
Ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to ecosystems and human health.

BENZO(E)PYRENE
Ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to ecosystems.

BENZO(B)FLUORANTHENE
Ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to ecosystems.

BENZO(A)PYRENE
Ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to ecosystems and human health.

PERYLENE
Ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to ecosystems.

BENZO(GHI)PERYLENE
Ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to ecosystems.

CHLORPYRIFOS
Ranked as one of the most hazardous compounds (worst 10%) to ecosystems.

BENZ(A)ANTHRACENE
More hazardous than most chemicals in 4 out of 7 ranking systems.

Oh, and the cabin filter in your car will not stop even a fraction of the carcinogens you end up breathing, so do some research and quit making yourself look foolish.

Now why don't you be a good little hypocrite and go feed your family some chopped cancer.

What an intelligent reply! Trust me, the last thing I want to do is to hang out with a bunch of Fascistic "useful idiots".

The loss of rights your mentality enables has been a slow and painful process to witness for those who love the freedoms we once had as a nation. You and your fascistic collectivist ideology has been chipping away at our rights now for quite some time, and the smoking bans you praise have paved the way for many other insanities.

Enjoy your salt bans.

Enjoy your transfat bans.

Enjoy your Happy Meal bans.

Enjoy the TSA fondling your children and your spouse.

Enjoy the checkpoints they are now setting up where are pulled over and your papers are demanding for nothing other than suspicion.

Enjoy your free speech zones,

Enjoy the Patriot Act.

Just remember it is people like you who make this all possible.

While our rights go up in flames one by one, we have collectivist fools such as yourself who gladly cheer for their own destruction.

Oh brother. You are following the tactics of the master anti-smoker and are too blind to see the obvious. Read this and then take a look in the mirror. Here's the beginning for your enlightenment.

http://www.davehitt.com/nov02/nicotine.html

One of the most popular debating techniques, especially on the Internet, is to call your opponent a Nazi. This can be done directly, or through indirect references like “jackbooted thugs” or “the religious Reich.” Whenever this happens, the opponent is likely to shout "Godwin’s Law" and declare himself the winner of the debate.

The accusation is seldom accurate. One can be labeled a Nazi for something as simple as wearing a goofy mustache or saying they dislike a person who is black or Jewish. But occasionally, it’s appropriate. Nazi’s loved to burn books as part of their campaign to suppress and control information, so comparing today’s modern day book-burners and censors to Nazis makes sense. Comparing violent racists to Nazis is appropriate for obvious reasons. And when it comes to those carrying out the current war on smokers, no other group matches their tactics, approaches and arguments as well as the Nazis. It’s a damn near perfect fit....

First off, you didn't say fried, you said BBQ's. But that's a moot point, being that last time I checked, cooking indoors doesn't cause Lung cancer, Emphasema, Throat cancer, low birth weight, low IQ (you for example, case in point), etc.
Oh good lord, any form of cooking meats other than boiling creates carcinogens silly.

You obviously are ignorant or a meat addict in complete denial.

I have seen a grandmother with a 2 year old child set in a car at Allen Elem. with the interior of the car so smoke filled it choked me just to look at it. How can people smoke and cough hard enough to spit a lung up not see how that is affecting the child? If a law has to be passed before behavior like this stops then I say

I'm simply pointing out the extreme hypocrisy that your side is capable of. If this bothers you....good!

Now tell us oh self righteous one, what kind of person hammers others lifestyle choice who then feeds their children things that are known to cause all kinds of cancers?

Now please point the casual reader to a thread where you hammer the meat addicts, or simply admit you are a complete hypocrite.

You hypocrites have no desire for true smoke free air as this would remove your right to go out to eat and enjoy a nice grilled steak.

Instead you fanatics make up ridiculous standards that you only wish to apply to one thing...and it's that one thing is something you don't like.

This is easy to prove.

Tell us, just what other forms of smoke qualify for your kinds "magical" standard of "no safe level"? How about a list of the top 10?

If you can not produce such a list it will simply prove once again that your entire position is based on hypocrisy and lies.
