Yes I agree..If cigarettes are banned well all of the smokers would really go crazy but they could have i think the option to stop.. and that would be the best solution for all smokers including me..

Government must do something about this matter cause smoking can really affect one's health. However, can we really control it or pass a law to ban it? Well, considering that the government earns money because of tax from every cigarette sale?

^well, they do earn a lot of money from the taxes from cigarettes, I think that the only thing that they have done is that they placed a label in cigarette packs saying
Government Warning: Cigarette Smoking is Dangerous to your health.

yes dexternicholson I certainly agree with you that tobacco is not as addictive as weed. As everyone knows, weed is full of nicotine.
When you constantly inhale nicotine you eventually become addicted to weed, which then slowly kills you.

Isn't it a little bit to much saying that the smoking should be completely banned? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I never seen a cigarette killing anybody, am I right? Moreover I really do think that living in the country which in some ways restricts its citizens doesn't make living a life pleasant. And more importantly, we're human beings and we do have brains (we even sometimes use them), so if somebody chooses the way of a smoker knowing the widespread facts that consequences can be fatal, it's his choice.
And one more thing, cause this is somehow similar to the topic, what about alcohol? Probably everyone are aware that sometimes (if the conditions are good) it triggers aggression, also from time to time we hear about a chap which had a couple of deeper ones and decided to check his perception on the road. Contrary have you ever heard that someone killed innocent man after smoking a cigarette?
Cherio everyone! and use your brains more often, excessive smoking do really kills

Good luck if banning cigarettes is going to help.
Hard drugs are banned and yet it still goes on.
If anyone who enjoys an alcoholic drink campaigns against smoking, just remember that cigarettes are shielding alcohol from being attacked next or taxed higher.
Once cigarettes go, you can be sure alcohol will be next followed by what ever the mob can be convinced of next.
We could end all up being non drinking, non smoking, non procreating maypole dancing poets.... - just joking of course.. but where does it end , and who will be the last one that decides that ?
