Christopher Oyin's curator insight, October 5, 2016 4:21 PM

I am very much inclined to agree with this article as i believe that smoking in a car with children in it negatively affects the children. This is because the children will not the like the smell or the smoke itself and can easily obtain second-hand smoke if exposed to the smoke often enough. Moreover, the smoke could inflict a number of illnesses or sicknesses on the children which-of course- they did not ask have.

I very much agree with this article as, I believe that this ban would discourage many from smoking. In addition, many who are around those who smoke are being negatively affected by it as, they may not like the smell or the actual smoke itself. Moreover, they may find that the smoke inflicts an illness on them, of which they most probably do not want. Furthermore, these unfortunate people did not pay for these negative effects therefore, they shouldn't have to tolerate it.

Rylan's curator insight, October 11, 2016 10:52 AM

I very much agree with this article as, I believe that this ban would discourage many from smoking. Smoking is a negative externality as third parties have to inhale smoke that other people produce. One way to reduce this negative externality, would be to ban smoking. The social cost of smoking is not covered by the consumer but it has been attempted by the government to limit social costs by the government introducing higher taxes on cigarettes
