Smokers c'mon, stop throwing them out on the ground. It's your right to smoke, we can't stop you, so do it responsibly.
If you live in California don't even ash out the Window you'll be cleaning up the intersections and roads with an orange suit on lol.

Now saying all that and the Butts comment... I used to drive my bosses car all the time when he was a smoker (audi A4, JGC, Exploder) and it never smelled like anything. He too did ventilation management and put the buts in a can and took them out of the car with him. He never liked the smell either.... I have been in cars that were smoked in once and I could tell but not his. So I do believe it is possible to hide, just difficult.
My father is a car salesman, and hates when vehicles are smoked in. My mom cant even be in a house with a candle burning, and cant be around people wearing cologne or perfume. Neither of them know im a smoker, and both have been in my jeep many times. I even used to smoke in my dads demo vehicles when i was a teenager... Its not that hard to manage. I smoke in my truck daily and none of you would ever be able to tell.

Re: Smoking Cigarettes in 2014 Grand Cherokee

I have news for all the smokers out there. You think people can't smell it, but you are most emphatically wrong. Your sense of smell has been diminished from smoking. People who are sensitive to cigarette smoke can smell it from a distance, even when you're outside and not smoking. I'm not telling anyone how you must behave, just stating the facts. I have several friends who smoke, and are very considerate about it, but everything they own reeks from the smell. When I follow a car with a smoker holding their cigarette out the window I have to close up my car and put the climate control on recirculate to keep from have an adverse reaction. I'm not unique in this sensitivity, I know quite a few others who have the same problem. I respect a smoker's right to poison themselves any way the want. I really don't think legislating these behaviors are effective, so I protect myself the best I can. I've only posted these comments so those of you who smoke can know that whatever you do, you're not hiding anything. Cigarette smoke stinks, and stale cigarette smoke stinks even worse. I hope I haven't offended anyone, especially the OP, but I believe I have a right to speak my mind on this subject too.

Does a whole lot more than stinks. Impairs judgment, slows reaction time to a crawl, and slowly makes you stupid.

Re: Smoking Cigarettes in 2014 Grand Cherokee

I'm the same bucket as a few folks here. I'm allergic to something in cigarette smoke, so if I'm around it, it's a bit of a living hell for me (Hay Fever x100). I can tell if a car has been smoked in pretty easily as a result.

As for smoking pot, other than the smell, the residue is pretty gnarly as well. I used to work in a small computer firm back in high school. Folks that smoked pot had some seriously F*'d up machines (cooling fans would be gummed up, etc...).

That being said, both are perfectly legal here in WA, so.. to each their own I guess.

Me, no thanks on either.

I bet the parents are being polite or have lost their sense of smell because you are their child. I can smell it on anyone who had a cigarette lately. It gets stuck in your clothes, hair, breath and anything else you are near. Washing only dulls the smell, it never gets rid of it.

This thread is making me want to quit smoking real cigarettes for good I've been smoking an E cig hope they don't stink and I just can't smell them... Never smoke real cigs in my cars though I agree cigs smell really bad and second hand smoke is terrible even being a smoker I can't stand second hand smoke.

Maybe your friends need to have better hygene. I ask friends all the time if they can smell it on me before we go into places, and rarely do they ever. And my parents were never polite about it, I would have literally had my ass beaten repeatedly by my parents if they had even suspected it.

Like i said, some people dont have the best hygene anyways... Mix that with smoking, and yeah, you get a person who always smells like smoke. If you are always concious of it though, it doesnt become a problem.

Re: Smoking Cigarettes in 2014 Grand Cherokee

In 1993 the EPA designated second hand cigarette smoke a Class A carcinogen - putting it in the same class as asbestos. Doesn't make sense that if you went into a restaurant today and saw asbestos falling from the ceiling the entire building would be emptied out; everyone who was in it would be decontaminated; the building would be sealed; and a hazmat crew would be dispatched to the scene to tear all the asbestos out, bag it and seal it, and incinerate it - yet some restaurants still permit smoking. I don't for a second condemn anyone for smoking, as it is a choice - same as I can (and often do) choose to stuff another cheeseburger into my already-overweight body. Difference is, when I eat a cheeseburger it takes no time off anyone's life expectancy near me except for my own.

Re: Smoking Cigarettes in 2014 Grand Cherokee

Not implying anything and nothing personal, but the other difference is smokers get the privilege of paying an extra 20 a check for a health insurance surcharge whereas the 450 pounder down the hall does not get hit with a surcharge.

That southpark episode where they treated smokers like lepers comes to mind...
