The first thing I plan to do is summarize the arguments in favor of the ban on tobacco advertising by the government of India. It is stated that this ban is already something that goes on in other countries. The article states in the section titled Ayes’, countries like france, finland, and norway had already imposed similar bans. And does the government not have a right to implement this ban$ The ban on cocaine globe wide is used as one of the leading examples in the article.not just is cocaine mentioned, but the Ayes’ speak of bans on ads for other dangerous products that remained in the market, such as firearms and many (pharmaceuticals. ) when speaking of ethics, a leading question that needs to be asked is, Is the product dangerous And who might be harmed?.The Ayes confront this conflict on many occasions.

And if there are health benefits, then advertise FOR the benefits, yet educate about the harmful effects to prevent people from going crazy. (People do need a choice, but where is the line drawn If we ban one product’s advertising on a harmful product, we need to ban it on all of the rest as well.
