I was reading an article about smoking, where I saw a baby in Indonesia smoking 2 packs of cigarettes per day, I was shocked, how can a young child like this be smoking, his parents should be arrested for endangering a child.

How old was the child? As in the parents taught their child to smoke? That's an all-time low for a parent to do. I'm a smoker but I have to hide it from my son. I don't want him to see me smoking or even smell the odor.

Oh I do remember this story and it was quite sad and frightening as figuratively speaking the child was not purchasing them it was his parent and why they thought this was okay was beside me. It was not funny at all and I remember the parents were penalized and the child was given proper rehabilitation. Nonetheless it should never had started for any parent to believe this was okay is wrong. Welcome aboard to you to myLot as I see you are very new.

almost everyone know smoking causes cancer and shortens a persons life by ten years. If people are aware of this why do they do it? smoking should be banned because it is ruining the future of our children.

The child was i think , was given a rehabilitation with the help of the Child Welfare Dept. As to the parents , i think they were given due penalty or punishment. I don't know if the parents are so ignorant as to the ill effect on the health of their child for smoking at that early age, but i felt angry for the parents for permitting their child to grow like that!
