Banning smoking will not stop a smoker from smoking. We have seen how unsuccessful were the prohibitions enforced by states. One should ban smoking in public places where smoke can have an adverse effect on others. Also I feel the regulations on selling cigarettes to minors under the age of 21. In the US, I have seen that there is always an age proof required when one tries to buy cigarettes or alcohol. Finally, one should take up measures to educate the people about the adverseness of smoking.

ha. banning smoking is not going to get you anywhere. if at all get to the root of the problem....ban reaping tobacco leaves! then no cigarettes... no problem. but no govt will ban reaping tobacco leaves cos of the revenue it earns!

Banning smoking period is never the right decision for several reasons .
Firstly , As long as a smoker smokes privately or with his/ her other smoker companions. He is ONLY harming his own health and not any body else's . It shouldn't be any one else's problem.
If smoking is harmfull to people's health so are several things dangerous to people's own lives - whether its race car driving or bungee jumping or many other things people treat as sports !!

Secondly , Whenever anything's been banned , example sale of alcohol as was done in few states .It ends up creating illegal market for these things . The problem wouldn't go away but ends up creating worse things like black market !!

Thirdly - The Tobacco industry does hire millions of people right from tobbaco growers & tobacco pickers to people working in the Tobbaco factories . As long as the goverment can't find jobs for those millions of workers as a replacement it has no business in rendering them jobless

Fourthy - The Goverment earns millions on taxes from the tobbaco Industry and that will be a serious loss of Revenue for the goverment , impacting the econony !!

Saying these points , its right for the goverment to ban smoking in public places but not ban smoking all together !!

Yeah, smoking should be banned. People just sell it to make money. More people probably die from smoking actually, they DO die from smoking more than anything else.Plus, it's no good for health, why do they do it anyway, to look cool? Yeah right Confused
It'll just kill them Confused
