    Tobacco-questions

    Discussion started by pacman - Oct 2, 2003

    Long time since I've posted geeze...

    I'm doing an argument paper on banning tobacco. I would like to hear some viewpoints on whether or not criminalizing could happen. I don't believe that it can anytime soon. I smoked for 3 or so years (14-18), quit for 3 and some years, and started again a month ago. Having grown since 18 I've noticed a lot of new things about addiction. It is apalling to me how addictive tobacco is. I know there is a choice of whether or not to smoke. I am in the process of quitting (by this I mean knowing that I can quit now, but smoking anyway...dumb haha)

    Anyways , throw out some ideas.

    My stance for the paper is pro-criminalization (even though I know it will not happen)

    Ethics, business, usa being around today because of tobacco...whatever other thoughts you've got

    thanks

    why would someone criminalize tobacco?

    you know you could get addicted to it so you took your chance.

    i smoke becasue i am bored.

    Yeah, there is enough shit around telling everyone how big of a dick tobacco sucks. I'm smart enough not to smoke that crap.

    Tobacco is Bad

    But it should not be banned. It kills 440,000 Americans every year, but it should not be banned. It causes heart disease, cancer, emphysema, COPD, Reynaud's disease and a host of other bad shit, but it should not be banned.

    Why not?

    Because if it was banned it would have the same idiotic fascination for teenagers that everything else that is banned seems to have, and instead of costing $2.75 a pack, the shit would cost $27.50 (or more) and people would be shooting each other off of street corners to get it. Let everybody smoke whatever they want, and if they get cancer, I guess they just fucking die sick and alone, gasping into an oxygen mask.

    Don't smoke. It's stupid and it's dangerous. And it ruins your lungs.
