smoking ban in CARS??

apparently, in Albany, NY, they are trying to pass a law making it illegal for people to smoke in their OWN CARS! the reason is to reduce littering and for the welfare of the possible child in the car.

why not just make it illegal like marijuana, this way we can throw anyone in sells rolling papers in jail for 9 months like we did to tommy chong?

the restaurant ban is one thing, but you should be able to do what you want IN YOUR OWN CAR.

opinions?


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

They are just nuts. Next thing, they will ban CD players in cars because they distract the driver. Then, they will ban drive-through fast foods, because it also promotes littering and distracts drivers.

I never smoke in my car though.

People know I'm very much against smoking, I wish it would be banned in all public places. But in your own house, in your own car, you should do whatever you want as long as it doesn't affect the safety of others (am referring to using cell phone in car). As far as I know, smoking doesn't distract the driver, so I don't care. This is law is taking it too far. If it's damaging to the child (which it is) in a car, it's also damaging at home so then you may as well ban smoking altogether.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

i dont smoke cigarettes, i smoke cigars, which are worse but i dont care. i smoke them in my car on rides and in a social environment. dont like standing around outside smoking. this is really pushing it thou and supposedly some smokers are FOR the ban [i dont believe this... just the typical news at work]

and yeah willow, most people smoke roll-ups. but there are still a few that prefer to roll their own tobacco. i just needed something associated with smoking that wasnt an actual cigarette and thats the fist thing that came to mind perhaps i shouldve said lighter??

its true there are cigarettes everywhere, but id rather see a cigarette somewhere than someones nasty piece of sticky gum on the bottom of my shoes, wouldnt you?

oh tommy chong was put in prison for selling paraphernalia over the internet. Bush and co. just recently closed down all "head shops" in america in a pathetic attempt to reduce the number of weed smokers

Will they try to ban a sex in cars?

I guess they won't, they'll never admit such thing exists.

Define "public".

its already illegal if its while driving careless or wreckless driving.

and if they catch you parked, i believe they can slap you with something. fine or arrest or both... bulllshit public nudity or obscene blahblah. this country is really getting ridiculous.

You mean, that if I am driving on a highway with my left hand on steering wheel, and my right hand doing something ( which is often the case ) to a girlfriend sitting next to me, it is already illegal? Or maybe it does not qualify?

i drive with one hand always. eating is different from smoking, you have to worry abnout getting food on yourself, and depending on the food youre eating, it may require two hands.
smoking, otoh, is easy. keep the window open, ash out of it.
i know the cat will be all for this since he was recently hit by some dumb bitch who dropped her cigarette.

cell phones still arent illegal nationwide yet we want to make cigarettes illegal while dirving? cell phones are much more of a danger in my opinion.
