Advantages Definately healthier
Disadvantages Some won't agree
Introduction;Chosing this catagory to put my op,was quite difficult.Whilst the debate of whether to permit smoking in public places or not is something I feel strongly about I want to go a little further into the subject of smoking,so I hope everyone will indulge me a little and read on a bit further.
I may be considered narrow minded,but in my mind there is only one right side to this,and that is the side that allows choice,and the right to that choice.
Smoking in public places?
Now it's time to consider a few other points about smoking....
When a handful of unfortunate(to put it mildly)people contracted CJD suspectedly from beef,the results were instant and profound.Beef was stripped from the shelves at an amazing rate.Bans were put in place on meat in a variety of ways and by many countries.
In view of this I fail to understand how a host of nations allow the sale of cigarettes,which are literally addictive,unhealthy,deadly consumables.
I have read many articles pointing at the expense to the nhs by smoking related desieses,yet none to point out the amount of the goverments revinue from the sale of tobacco.
There is something fundamentally wrong when cash income overrides the welfare of people,and feel had beef been taxed at a similar rate then it would never have been withdrawn from sale in any way.
Not being totally nieve I realise that the withdrawl of tobacco would have great financial implications on our goverment,and effects on existing smokers,but there are ways to adress this too.
Outlaw the sale of tobacco products,let those who are long standing smokers have a perscrition for patches or similar,and whilst they still need them cigarettes..
