Tobacco advertising should be banned because it has such a detrimental effect on not just the users but individuals who have not chosen to take up a risk to their health. Unlike alcohol which can pose a risk to those who drink excessively, tobacco has caused many who are not users to come down with chronic and terminal illnesses including cancer and emphysema. Due to the second hand effects of tobacco, advertising for its products should be banned to make it clear that it is an unacceptable risk to the health and safety of society as a whole.
Advertising for tobacco products needs to be be banned. Tobacco kills so many people annually that it does not need to be promoted. It is immoral and wrong. I do not support it at all. Tobacco commercials can influence people who are currently non smokers to go out and smoke.
