    I heard on the radio last week about how now they have determined that 3rd hand smoke...that is the smoke smell in cars and homes has long term health effects like first and second hand smoke does.

    I say in 5-7 years people that smoke in cars and homes will get far less in resale of them due to this. You mark my words. It will happen.

    I promise you, the smell of cigarette smoke already hurts the resale value of cars and homes. :supergrin:

    It does leave residue on things, its just nasty.

    If I'm car hunting and it smells like smoke or has remnants in the ashtray, I'll move on. Not worth my time or hassle trying to clean it all out, it permeates into EVERYTHING!

    I know but soon people will have solid medical proof they can produce instead of just a preference.

    It will be like a drug house that has to have a special team clean it properly via government guidelines.

    I'm not sure how they plan to pull this off since there has yet to be any credible evidence that second hand smoke presents a health risk.

    The scary thing is I used to crack jokes about that years ago. Next it will be fourth hand smoke if you see someone smoking it could cause heath problems. Just remember second hand smoke leads to secondhand coolness. At least that is what I was told by The Onion.:whistling:

    Truth.

    I know I've passed on some cars solely because of excessive smoke smell.
