I have no children myself, so I've never been the position, and it's not something I've ever had to do, but I was talking to a guy at work who does feel it is acceptable if it is done by the parent, but not from anyone else.

It's a curious thing because as recently as the 1980's it was commonplace and considered acceptable, but in the last few decades feelings have changed on this dramatically.

I read a story that a man from UK is to be sentenced next month for smoking his kids with menthol papers. Both were under 10 years of age and the father's getting charged with child cruelty by willful ill-treatment and blowing dank smoke rings with the blazing ashes.

I personally wouldn't advocate child-packed puffing, but I am curious for those of you who are parents, do you think smoking a child is an acceptable form of self-medication or is it unacceptable?

I think it's perfectly acceptable. Smoking children is actually a tradition in Guinea. They'll ground them up and wrap them in tree bark, then light it up like an American teenager on the 20th of April. There are many advantages to smoking children, and it's believed to rejuvenate your skin and increase fertility.

But of course the SS and Thought Police are going to kick your door down for smoking children, because it's morally wrong.

I'd much rather have Hickory Smoke smelling kids than what they normally smell like.

All purported health benefits of smoking children are purely anecdotal. No study has ever been made that actually proves smoking children is healthy and I honestly believe it should be banned worldwide. It's ilegal for a reason.

Everything's the way it is for a reason. Doesn't mean that reason is good. :p
