Combining smoking, kids and cars may soon be against the law in Maryland.

State lawmakers are taking another look at a bill that would make it a crime to smoke in a car that has a passenger who is under the age of 8.

It would be a primary offense, meaning police could pull you over for that reason alone.

The measure failed last year, but it's being discussed in the house this week.

The State Senate will take up the issue on Friday.
