Smoking Toddler 10 Years Later…..

There’s been much controversy after a video was up load of 2-year-old Ardi Rizal leak by the Sun.A British magazine known mostly as being a tabloid or celebrity news world wide.In the description the video disclaim to be used for “educational purposes” and not for fun.


Above is a shocking video of a 2-year-old Indonesian boy puffing on a cigarette. The video is igniting debate and stunning parents, doctors and anti-smoking advocates worldwide.

Unbelievably, the parents of young Ardi do not seem to think there is a problem. They say he looks and acts healthy – and that trying to remove the TWO PACKS a day of cigarettes from the toddler’s routine sparks tantrums in the child. “He’s addicted,” his father explains.

The story of Ardi’s addiction comes to us a few weeks after the hotly debated smoking ban has Lansing residents and business owners adjusting to a smoke-free indoors. Part of the outrage of this story is that adults who know better have knowingly exposed this child to a deadly, toxic chemicals and addiction.

Lansing business owners, especially those who typically draw a smoking crowd, argue that they stand to lose income because of the ban and the smoking public has lost the ability to smoke in bars, restaurants and other public places. But, the non-smoking public can breathe easier – and now, we as a society have made a move to stop “knowingly exposing others to deadly, toxic chemicals.”

This country is built on freedom – including individual choice. But that freedom has limits. As Oliver Wendell Holmes said, “The right to swing my fist ends where the other man’s nose begins.” The same goes for blowing smoke.

How this baby get a hold of cigarettes in the first place is a good question.Tim did his own parody some 10 years later to show what would happen if toddler was to keep smoking.
