Cigarettes should be banned for children
Debate Rounds (3)
This includes, if you wish to be a complete moron, allowing your children to smoke. It negatively affects no one except your children, and, as a parent, you are wholly responsible for them. I assume this is the reason you want a smoking ban for children, the "greater good" argument. Tell me, is it a good idea to give the government the ability to tell you to do and what not to do on a personal level? If they can control wether you smoke or not, who's to stop them from controlling what food you eat, or restricting your internet capabilities?
In short, personal responsibility rests on the individual, not the government.

Seeing the future, if people continue smoking especially children. Our world would be polluted, many people(men, women, children,) as well as the other living organisms (plants, animals, etc) will die. If smoking continues to be legal, then the development of our world would not continue, since the hope of a nation are the children.
In additional, people nowadays should develop their personal responsibilities. They should open their eyes and see what is happening in their surroundings and see what will happen to our world in the future if smoking continues.
