    Should Tobacco be illegal?

    Tobacco products shorten the lives of 480,000 people a year in USA alone. On average a smoker loses 10 -- 15 years of life. About 264 billion cigarettes and 12.4 billion large cigars are sold yearly in USA.

    Tobacco is illegal in Bhutan. In Russia, sale of tobacco was punished severely during the years 1550 -- 1700.

    That is a bogus poll. It doesn't allow any opinions that do not restrict tobacco in one way or another.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Prohibition simply doesn't work. We are consistently dropping the smoking rate with education
