@angels…maybe you should ask why he doesn't give a crap about you…Don't depend on the gov't to help you out by creating another law!

"Oh, Charlie, we barely new 'ye. It must be the air in Tallahassee. I would never smoke in a car with small children: but that does not mean we should criminalize stupid conduct" I see...you would never poison your kids, but you don't want the government to tell other people to not poison theirs. Let me guess---you are not a rapist, but you do not want the government to tell other men not to rape.

This is what happens when society asked the government for stuff. There is no stopping them now. For all those who have asked the government for help, enjoy it!

Oh, Charlie, we barely new 'ye. It must be the air in Tallahassee. I would never smoke in a car with small children: but that does not mean we should criminalize stupid conduct. With 300 chicken ranchers in suburban areas,dysfunctional schools that are breeding grounds for thugsters, a river we can't get dredged, a downtown that has not added a tall building in decades,and our proud claim to being the murder capital of Florida, Jacksonville needs a ban against ignorance and proles and government waste. Let's start with banning stupid nanny state bills.

Another unenforceable nonsense law proposed by a half-with Politico looking to make a name for himself. Like the Cops don't have enough to do as is. The auto today, is regarded by many as an extension of the home. Are we to see Government forcing the will of others upon all of us from the womb to the tomb? I quit smoking years ago but still respect the rights of others. Think carefully about this proposed law. It may very well do more harm than good by opening doors of intrusive enforcement heretofore unthought of.

I hope it goes through - I have asthma and my husband smokes in the car with the window down and I still get choked up. Even if I sit in the back with my grandchild I can still smell it.
