Should Smoke-Less Tobacco Be Allowed In Public Schools? Smoke-Less Tobacco doesn't have the same effects on others surrounding you as smoking does. I Understand some people have asthma and smoking should be prohibited. On the other hand smoke-less Tobacco is little to nothing at all harmless to the people surrounding you. It may make you sick by seeing people spit, but does it really matter?

I accept your debate.

Let's jump right into this thing.

Smokeless tobacco should not be allowed into public schools for one fundamental reason: the school system should not be condoning children to take drugs of any kind. This is not a matter of which form of tobacco is more socially acceptable, it is a matter of ethics and health. It is morally wrong to grant students, who are presumably children, permission to use a substance linked to causing cancer. Furthermore, you haven't even specified at which grade levels you think smokeless tobacco should be allowed. Public schools can range from Pre-K all the way up to Grade 12 and even college if you want to count public universities. I assume you mean at high school level for most colleges do not condemn tobacco use and I can't imagine anyone thinking it's OK for a elementary school-er to partake in drugs. Nevertheless, giving students, no matter what grade level, the thumbs up to use tobacco on school grounds is not good academic policy, it is not good health policy and if schools want the best for their students, they'd encourage them to stay off it by prohibiting its use on school grounds.
