Results supply further proof that secondhand smoke's effects on children are not minor, temporary, or reversible. The effects will not go away. If children do not grow healthy lungs when they are supposed to, they will likely never recover. The process is not forgiving and the children are not going to be able to make up this loss later in life. To get the word out to parents about the dangers of secondhand smoke, two states (Arkansas and Louisiana) have made it illegal to smoke in a car with young passengers. In California, a similar bill is currently under consideration in the state Legislature.
The legislature appears to be a step in the right direction. How enforceable it will prove to be, however, another question. Still, it is a start.
