I don't understand why in todays day people would even start smoking, with all the info we know about how bad it is why would you even want to start?

just a few things to point out .

here in the uk smoking would never be banned for 2 reasons.

the government would have to buy out all of the cigarette companies and they are like billion dollar a year companies so i dont think they will be doing that any time soon.

also the governemtn make too much money off of cigarettes from taxes.

and id also like to add that smoking in public buildings here is now officially banned you should drive past a pub at like 9 o'clock saturday night lol alot of cold men standing outside coz they started smoking to look cool.

WELL HOW COOL DO U LOOK NOW LOL

and you can't do it because??
But you are right about the taxes, the amount of money the government gets is just unbelievable.

And banning it because "it isn't healthy and doesn't have any advantages" could also be used to ban alcohol, like 50% of the stuff they sell on grocery stores and many other things.

well i suppose legally they could but they would face so much hassle and grief from the smoking companies it wouldnt be worth it.

i mean imagine how pissed you was if the government decided to stop you business taking billions of $$$$ away from you each year.

can they legally do that ?

im not sure myself there must be some kind of law against it

Yeah, but if they buy them illegally, the government will miss out hugely on duty tax, you say so what, but they have to to get it from somewhere so they'll just put the tax on something else, the air we breathe, I shouldn't wonder!!

It would be taking peoples rights away abit lol, I dont smoke but I think its wrong for the goverment to say NO you cant do this. As for the smoking ban here in england I think its good to a certain extent as for the smokers have to smoke outside etc which is fair enough but it is their choise to try to kill themselfs its their choise
