Except the actual cigarettes of course, those still generate too much money, but that won’t stop the behavioral police from finding innovative ways to make smoking of said legal product unlawful. This time around, politicians have set their targets on adult drivers who light up with kids under 14 in the vehicle. And it won’t matter if the windows are rolled down or not.
The very act of smoking with a child on board could cost violators a $100 fine if a prudish state assemblyman and his colleagues have their way. Reports the Daily News: “If cops believe a driver is in violation, they can stop the vehicle and question the passengers’ ages.” Sounds like a plan. Why should parents be able to decide what’s good for their children?
