Smoking is one of the worse things you can purposely do to yourself. You are essentially poisoning your lungs, and body overall. There are no benefits to smoking. Not only that, but it harms others around you with second hand smoke. If smoking was banned, then people would be healthier, and live longer.
Smoking is bad for you. People do not gain anything from smoking except serious health effects. People ought to understand this fact. For those who think that electronic cigarettes are better than the regular cigarettes, they are also wrong. According to studies, people who smoke electronic cigarettes for a year will begin smoking traditional cigarettes.
No this is silly. We all know smoking is obviously bad for you. But not allow it? No. Smoking makes some people feel good. If they wont to smoke let em smoke. Hey hey hey hey smoke every day. Thanks for the words needed nate dog. I appreciate it. Peace
Assuming this question is asking if we should ban smoking, I'm gonna have to give a solid "hell no". Smoking is bad, yes- it's awful for you, its awful for those around you, and it's awful for the environment. But we shouldn't ban it. Should we protect people from second hand smoke? Absolutely. But banning it is unconstitutional and bad for the economy. Not to mention, it'd be ineffective- people smoke weed even though it's largely illegal, and the prohibition of alcohol led to organized crime. So no, it shouldn't be banned.
In the U.S.A we have a right, known as the freedom of choice, this freedom means that people own their own bodies, therefore people can make decisions to harm their bodies if they choose to, John Locke ( a philosopher that Thomas Jefferson based his human rights philosophy from) says: "Every man has a property in his own person. This nobody has a right to, but himself". Is smoking bad? Of course it is, but it doesn't mean people shouldn't have the choice to harm themselves if they were to choose to. You have the right of choice as long as you don't impede on other peoples life, liberty,and property.
