Smoking has been a controversial issue in public culture as well in media. When someone smokes, the person lights the tobacco and all the chemicals so they burn. The person breathes in the smoke so it goes through the airways and into the lungs. The nicotine in the smoke get passed into the blood. Throughout the 20 century smoking has garnered too much attention on tv and in people life. Moreover 100 million people died from tobacco related diseases in the 20th century without action taken. Tobacco kills up 50% of its users, even though 1 billion people could die this century from tobacco related diseases. One research conducted by CNN in 1994 showed that 40% of people are in favor for smoking. Yet another research by Anna Heart showed that 70% population are for knowing public smoking. All thing consider smoking has a lot of disadvantages more than advantages and represent death. Personally I’m against smoking for many reasons health, addiction.
Smoking is something that millions of Americans do every day and companies profit millions of dollars every year through the sales of cigarettes, but at what cost? Five dollars a pack for a cancered lung and a heart attack. A deadly addiction comparable to heroin or cocaine, cigarettes are the only product that efficiently kills more than five million people year -- one million in the Americas-- and is still legal. The damage that it causes does not surface until years later after habitual use. The government should issue a federal ban on cigarettes because of the adverse health effects..
Many smokers have found themselves at the center of most debates and very controversial topics. They feel like some smoking bans are unreasonable and unconstitutional. In fact many believe that smoking pollutes the air and causes diseases. Throughout this paper we will be discussing how each branch of government view smoking bans and laws. United States is made up of three branches of government. They are Legislative, Executive, and Judicial. Each branch of government has an important role to play when it comes to our laws. The legislative branch makes the laws, executive branch enforces the law and the judicial branch evaluates laws.
In the article “Why ban the sale of cigarettes? The case for abolition” by Robert Procter states that “Another objection commonly raised to any call for a ban is that this will encourage smuggling, or even organized crime.” I can agree with this statement although this author is for banning this statement brings out a huge issue that could potentially arise from banning tobacco. If there is a will there will be a way. Another outrageous idea I read in the article called “Regulatory Approaches to Ending Cigarette-Caused Death and Diseases in the United States” by Richard Daynard was the fact that the government would give tobacco companies a limit to how many cigarettes that can produce each year. By doing this it stated by the end of 2015 “it would become unlawful for a cigarette manufacturer to produce more than two-thirds of the brands baseline.”. So not only would the indoor-outdoor smoking bans be in effect the government would now be regulating the amount of cigarettes produced in the United States. Therefore I feel as strongly as others about banning smoking rights. I am a non-smoker myself and as long as you aren’t purposefully blowing smoke in my face, feel free to do as you please. While you can, that is.
Smoking is a dangerous and expensive habit that comes with no benefit. Cigarettes are known for being one of the leading causes of preventable deaths worldwide. With very little success, many efforts have been made to put an end to smoking cigarettes, such as tax raises, restrictions on where smokers can smoke, and graphic advertising on the cigarette packet themselves. The harmful effects of cigarettes are endless, such as heart disease and various types of cancer. Cigarettes are also polluting the earths waters, land, and even wildlife. All in all, cigarettes should be banned because banning cigarettes would help save the environment, bring huge health benefits, and ultimately, put an end to preventable deaths.
Paper rolled up with tobacco, chemicals, and nicotine better known as a cigarette has become a more popular habit in the United States. Some want a ban on smoking cigarettes in public spaces or to make public spaces tobacco free, some want a ban on smoking cigarettes all together, and some do not want it banned at all. Cigarette smoking is becoming more and more of a problem in the United States. After the first cigarette, a person can become hooked to the nicotine and chemicals that are in a cigarette, some people it will be after the second or third. Either way after the first few a person is going to crave cigarettes and not want to stop. Cigarette smoking should be banned in the United States because of the many problems that accompany them, a few of the problems are health risks, excessive advertisement, and exorbitant prices.
What if you were to live in a place where our government debts weren’t severe? What about living in a world with a cleaner atmosphere? Would you want to have excessive Carbon Dioxide and other harmful chemicals in the air? This applies to our world and many wish this could happen, but with one easy solution that is beneficial to many, it can happen. Smoking should be banned because it harms the environment, affects our body in a negative way, and is a burden to our economy.
Do we really want our children smoking cigarettes? Don’t you want to live long enough to see your grandchildren grow up. Seeing them take their first steps, Saying their first words, having the experience of having those warm embracing hugs with them? Being able to be by their side when they feel like they’re alone in the world, well it seems like the majority of the world doesn’t, I agree with banning cigarettes because, of the dangers it brings to non-smokers, the disease increase,and death increase. With every cigarette we choose to light up, inhale we decide to trade a piece of our lives for a couple minutes of delight, on average 11 to 12 yrs of our life is taken from us.
Every year the US government passes numerous laws to protect its citizens. Yet, they still fail to protect its citizens from the leading cause of death in America. Although they work to protect the citizens they continue to ignore the most preventable death in America. The culprit responsible for these deaths is the cigarette. The impact that cigarettes make on a human is awful and there should be no reason why it is legal. Cigarettes should be banned because it is one of the harm fullest drugs around that is still legal. Cigarettes not only affect ones health but it affects the environment, economy and others around them.
Smoking cigarettes causes more deaths than HIV, illegal drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, and firearm- related incidents combined. Some people say that banning cigarettes would be bad because the government makes a lot of money from the tax revenues. Or that it would increase illegal trade. But based off of the fact that millions of people die each year, cigarettes should be banned because it causes many health issues, it affects a lot of people, and it costs the government a lot of money.
The use of tobacco has become a global problem. Tobacco poses serious health issues to both kids and adults. People in today's society believe that the government has no right to take smoking away from the public. I think of it in a completely different way. First of all smoking is very expensive. These expenses don't just get payed by the people; non smokers also pay for people to smoke indirectly. They pay for people to smoke via public assistance. Second of all, smoking is extremely bad for your health. Smoking results in many health complications. Finally, smoking does not just risk the life of a smoker. Smoking will also harm the people around you.
Smoking one cigarette can throw away eleven minutes of your life. Add a hundred and thirty cigarettes and you have lost an entire day. Not only did you lose a fragment of your lifetime, but you additionally lost the opportunities that came along with it. Cigarettes, known as one of tobacco’s many forms, are being lit recklessly. People are carelessly draining their lifetime by inhaling these fatal products. Despite the fact that the usage of cigarettes is widely popular, cigarettes should be deemed illegal in the United States to prevent further damages on our health, environment, and population. Although cigarettes have immensely aided our economy, it would be best to abolish the usage of these harmful products.
Why should cigarettes be illegal? That is a great question. Tobacco smoke is a mix of over 7,000 chemicals. Cigarettes take away to many lives, can harm the people around you, and cost many Americans their money, time, and health . Honestly, I have a very strong opinion on this topic, because I've seen most of these effects first hand with my family. Let me explain myself...
Lastly, cigarettes should be legal to not take people's freedom away. People have the right to chose whether if they want to smoke or not. In the U.S. we are facing many other problems worse than smoking that is causing violence, murder, mental and physical disorders. For example, a recent study made by WIRED has defined that America will be facing a big overwhelmingly obese by 2030. This problem will make a huge impact to the community, for the reason it would make increase the health care costs by s much as $66 billion. This is a bad problem that we would be facing a couple of years from
Spending money on smoking is too much and leads to nothing, and there are no benefits that people can get from smoking. Smoking can hit personal finances and smokers are burning their money for no reason. Instead of using money to get cigarettes, people can donate to non-government organizations to wipe out poverty and change people’s lives. Smoking is a major factor that is destroying the environment. Smoking cigarettes is bad for the air. People who do not smoke have to breathe the bad air around the smokers. Smoking needs to be banned in public to let other people breathe the fresh air. Most Americans are exposed to outdoor and indoor air that can cause cancer and other serious health problems. Smoking is a serious problem that needs to be taken care of. If we want a strong environment, clean environment, and a good public health, we need to ban smoking once and for all.
