Alberta law makes it illegal to smoke in vehicles with anyone under 18 years old present, punishable by a $1,000 fine on the first offence. There was a statement issued by police that they will be enforcing it too.

I see no issue with people smoking in their own campsites, just so long as everyone there is okay with it.

I quit about 26 years ago when my wife announced she was pregnant with our first child.

I 'my not a smoker but find it interesting that the majority of the population, as witnessed by their votes, supports smoking pot but is against cigarettes.

That may be the case in your state but I sure wouldnt coach people into believing that to be factual in all States or Provinces.

In BC for example the police do indeed have the authority to stop any vehicle when they suspect someone is smoking in the presence of children! they dont need another reason to pull the car over.

My statement was only in reference to the original poster's comment about the Oregon Law, partially because I wonder about the motives of that class of law.

My state, NH, does not have a no smoking with minors law. If a parent smokes in a small volume with their children or probably anyone, it probably indicates a bigger problem than the cigarette smoke.

Personally there are too many laws that seem to resolve little.

Does preventing smoking in the car prevent smoking at home? Oops, need another ineffective law.

If I remember correctly in my studies, the Bible gives us
ten commandments and rabbis have listed about 162 variations of those laws.

But the USA has more than 4 million laws.
Instead of enforcing the laws to start with, after every election
they pass more laws. Who knows how many laws are on the books today.

As far as smoking, I gave it up before I got started when they went to 35 cents
a pack. And being the cheap skate I am, I would never pay 4 bucks a pack.

My mom and dad were chain smokers. You couldn't even see out the windshield
for the tar left behind. Now that's heavy smoking.

Norm I hope your arguments aren't what they appear to be. You're NOT really in favor of smoking in a small space with children present are you?

Many laws are made with idea that they call attention to a situation. Compliance is often dependent on the individual. Seat belt laws are difficult to enforce, driving and using a cell phone laws are difficult to enforce. That doesn't mean they shouldn't be on the books and the violator shouldn't be punished for violating the law.

True,you really don't have to worry about it, but we must all be cautious about which law is truly necessary.(of course, some are)
When one man's liberty is diminished, all suffer the loss.

e.g...
I have never smoked,and I have been a teetotaller from birth,and would advise abstinence in both areas due to the obvious detrimental consequences, both private and civic.

Alcohol was instrumental in the destruction of my childhood family and tobacco killed my father.
Still... I am reluctant to advocate prohibition, as beguiling as it's Siren's song may be...
Liberty is just too precious for cavalier treatment.

Sometimes laws are made to protect the rest of us. No smoking laws are made to protect you and me from inhaling second hand smoke. Anti-smoking while in a car with a small child are made to reduce the amount of second hand smoke the child is subject too. There's big difference between a 144 cubic (about) feet of space in an automobile and an 8,000 cubic foot home. The concentration of carcinogens is much less in the house than house than is car.

Also the anti-smoking laws help reduce the number of cigarette butts laying around that can and often do harm wildlife.

I think it's reasonable to have laws to prevent adults from slowly poisoning children.

True, sometimes they are...
So then,caution is ill-advised?
Whose Ox deserves it? (caution that is)
