According to the article found by opening this link, http://www.naag.org..., banning all tobacco products would be beneficial for everyone's health.
1) Nearly all new smokers will start using tobacco before they're 18yrs old and will become addicted before they are mature enough to understand the risks.
2) A significant percentage of those new smokers will die prematurely from tobacco related illnesses.
In conclusion, banning all tobacco products will reduce addiction, illnesses and deaths related to these legal but harmful products.

Yes, smokers will start smoking around 18, but around that age, people know right from wrong. People start smoking tobacco products around that age because it relieves them of their stress and troubles.
Tobacco related illnesses could kill them but who is to say that it will help them?
If we were to ban tobacco products, then that is a heavy use if government action, abuse of power and it does no good if people are harmed for being forces to stop smoking "for their own good." (http://www.medicalnewstoday.com...)
All in all, all tobacco products should NOT be banned.
