If you go back to the early 30's in America the government banned alcohol. The�s did not result in everyone being sober and stop drinking because people smuggled the alcohol.�this was what created the mafia in the U.S.

Al Capone was one who because very famous for his smuggling of alcohol. The exact same could happen with cigarettes. People can choose the ways to spend their life. If they want to smoke they can smoke and ruin their life. The criminals get richer by smuggling stuff and they will get very rich by smuggling and selling cigarettes. This could result in a complete increase of criminal gangs who can rape, murder and rob and always get out of the way because they bribe the police and judges. Or threaten them.
