While I was writing my last post I started getting angry when I got to the part about people smoking around kids. That really angers me. Whenever I see people in a car with a child in it and the people are smoking, I want to beat the crap out of them or at least tell them about it.
It is only my opinion, but I feel that smoking in a car with a child inside is child abuse. You are hurting the child on the inside by making them breathe the foul cigarette smoke and second hand smoke. They don’t have a choice in the matter. They might say something and most likely will be admonished for it, but they surely can’t jump out of the car and take off.
Some states have taken steps to save our children by enacting laws that do not allow people to smoke in a vehicle with a child in it. To those states I say way to go. Keep fighting for our kids. To the states that haven’t enacted any laws to protect our children from this addicting smoke inside of a vehicle, I say what the hell are you waiting for?
West Virginia needs to get moving on this as well. Now is the time for our state to be a leader and set an example for others to follow instead of being 10 years behind the times and last or next to last in every category.
We need to save our Children.
Always remember to buckle up (especially your kids)
