    Natiko's Debate of the Week (01/08-07/08): Cigarettes

    DEBATE OF THE WEEK (01/08-07/08): CIGARETTES

    Cigarettes should, or should not, be banned? State your opinion with fundament, thanks.

    Definitions:

    Cigarette: an small fine roll of delicately cut tobacco, enclosed on paper with thing wrapping. Develops addiction into consumers, and needless to say, can produce heart attacks, cancer, throat pain, tuberculosis, and many other diseases.

    Banned: to prohibit something, especially by official degree.

    Next week's debate: Sex Offenders and Pedofiles: Punishment?
    God is great, beer is good, and people are crazy.

    No, you could ban it in public places, but at bars and other places no. You can't ban cigerette as it's almost impossible to do so.

    I would say Limit cigarets to people not fully bad
    make it so that you are required to have a license to buy cigarets just like you need one to drive a car

    Then have the government create smoke shops where people swipe their card in a machine and then that allows you to purchase a pack of smokes and you would have a monthly limit and to increase this limit you could pay a fee

    this would do 2 major things
    1) Limit minors to acess to cigarets even more
    2) Discourage people from buying as many cigarets

    The government would still be making money but instead of all from taxes it would be from people who smoke more that pay the monthly fee for access to buy more cigarets.

    to bad this will never happen but it would save so much money in government healthcare spending, cancer rates would decline dramatically, people would live longer, infant disability would decline, and minors would have a even harder time getting smokes due to not being able to acquire a license till they're of age.

    If there was a way to ban it, I'd be all for it. It's a disgusting habit. If you can't ban it, then tax it. Whack a big tax on it. Use the revenue to fund medical infrastructure needed to tend to all the people with emphysema, lung cancer etc from all the smoking they do.

    What do you mean by this?



    OT: Get rid of cigarettes. Corporations just want more wealth. There's NOTHING positive about that shit.

    Banning cigarettes is like giving everyone a free car, it won't happen.
