Val, concerning the last two, relative to 20 years ago - there is very little tobacco grown in this country. The only "kids" doing it would be on a family allotment - which would mean - very small total number. I live where the rattlers are thick, thick, thick...yet there is no law prohibiting children from picking weeds.
As to the cell, the county I live in has no ban on cell phones (one is in place inside city limits, and that was recent) and there are plenty of places the speed limit is 75 mph. But they are worried about the tiny number of kids on tractors going 10 mph?
Trooper...good point about horses!!! Exactly, small farms almost all rely on their own children and relatives.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
