Here's more evidence that the nanny state is out of control. CNN REPORTS that a judge has ordered parents in a custody hearing not to smoke around their daughter.

The judge "cited in detail dozens of studies on the harms caused by secondhand smoke and concluded that the court was obligated to act in the child's best interests and limit her exposure to smoke." The judge also "ordered the girl's parents not to let anyone else smoke around her."
