I would like to see smoking banned period.
Ditto, would cost this country a lot less.
Then they'd have to find other way to garnish tax revenue to replace the duty and sale tax from tobacco sales plus the health problems will still be there for years to come.
Once tobacco is banned the dogodders will start of other things..
What u mean it would cost this country a lot less?
Most people don't realise that smokers pay for their own treatment further down the track if they get sick. The tax on cigarets is very high and its in the governments best interest to keep smokers smoking :-) People seem to have this illusion that if smoking was banned taxpayers would be better off. Thats far from the actual truth.
It is about health
Then it is my choice as a smoker to look after my own health, i wont be forced into not smoking (or in fact forced into any type of you have to be healthy), why don't they ban fast food and unhealthy food and make it you need government issued dinners on your table?
but your smoke is not kept just to you, it is inhaled by those that are not interested in or want to smoke or those who cannot avoid it. The residue of poisons are left to come in contact with those who don't want it. As for food unless you are an extremely messy eater the food you eat will not be ingested
by others unless they choose t.
Do you drive a car?
Does it use petrol or diesel?
As for if im smoking, i am usually outside and if im outside i doubt at all if you are breathing in any more dangerous chemicals than you do from living in a city everyday.
