Maker of Camel cigarettes bans smoking in its offices: Is this long overdue (yes) or hypocritical (no)?

  • Yes yes yes

    Yes yes yes yes yes yes ye yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes

  • The type of business is no reason to change what should be done within its offices.

    Just because Camel makes cigarettes doesn't mean that their office rules should be any different from other companies. Now that smoking is becoming something that is generally accepted as not right, smoking in public places is being banned across the country. Why should the Camel offices be any different? Just because they make cigarettes doesn't make them different.

  • Yes, smoking ban was really overdue.

    In today's society, everybody understands very well the harmful effects of smoking. Being a giant cigarette manufacturer doesn't relieves the company from thinking about the welfare its own employees. Also, most of the companies now a days doesn't allow smoking in their own premises. Further, it will be a lesson for the smokers to know that even though Camel is selling cigarettes for others but when it comes to themselves, they do not even allow their own employees to smoke in their premises considering its bad consequences.

  • It is long overdue for the maker of Camel cigarettes to ban smoking it its offices.

    While cigarettes are legal, and may be bought by anyone over the age of 18, the breathing of their smoke--whether first- or secondhand--should be voluntary. Cigarettes pose a health hazard via secondhand smoke, and when smoked in a closed, confined space such as an office, one person smoking exposes all others to the risk. So, if Camel were to continue to allow smoking it its offices, it would effectively be forcing its employees to choose between employment with the company, or their own health.

  • Is Camel being hypocritical, yes.

    Camel, a major manufacturer of cigarette, is now banning smoking at their job sites. We all know that smoking is not healthy, however this company has been downplaying the effects of their cigarettes for years. It seems they finally are admitting what we have all known for a some time, its not a healthy work environment when smoke is allowed. Yet they continue to manufacture them, and earn huge profits off the people they are harming.

  • Camel Cigarettes Banning Smoking in Offices Hypocritical

    It is very hypocritical of the makers of Camel cigarettes to ban smoking in their offices. For years Big Tobacco has been fighting the inclusion of warnings on their packaging. While it is impossible to deny the negative effects of smoking the tobacco industry has certainly tried to downplay those negatives. Continuing to produce harmful tobacco products while banning smoking in their offices is ignorant at best and hypocritical at worst.
