Raising the age would not be the perfect solution to keeping all young adults away from cigarettes, but it could keep generations from throwing their lives away. Most smokers try their first cigarette at age 11. When an 11 year-old tries one cigarette it seems like not much of a big deal, not good but one isn’t the end of the world. You would think they hate it and would never go back but in every cigarette there is enough nicotine to get someone addicted. A person will inhale 1 to 2 milligrams of nicotine from each cigarette which is just enough to start an addiction.
One way smoking is encouraged is society thinks adults should be allowed to make the decision to harm their self or not. Another reason we need it is that banning smoking in public areas will draw people who do smoke which is a big amount away from that business so it is good for business. A reason smoking is justified is it is legal to smoke cigarettes so the government have no right to make smokers stop (“Pros…”). The banning of smoking will bring problems in many ways like if you ban smoking in public places it will encourage people to smoke more at home and around their kids and it will also run businesses out of business (“Pros…”). The government should ban smoking in public places and anyway the dangers of smoking overrule the good attributes that smoking causes which is not very much.
But a lot of people really don’t understand the actual dangers of alcohol. So they want to lower the minimum drinking age from 21 to 18 because they think 18 years old adult is enough mature to handle. Although in reality, it would kill sociality and the country because of those people who never think for the action before they do. Lowering the Drinking Age Law is the worse choice for the government to do and most people absolutely oppose. Most people agree and strongly recommend that in order to drink, people should have a higher age of initiation and maturity because of the damages posed by drinking, which they lost themselves in alcohol.
I believe smoking should be banned in the U.S. not only do the harmful fumes hurt you, they affect others. Why keep a harmful product that kills not only the people that smoke but ,also anyone around them. Many cigarette smokers claim it's their body their harming but it affects everyone. Imagine how many people would still be living if they never started smoking. Many children live with parents who smoke, and imagine how many times they are made fun of because the way they smell.
The children asked the adults why they themselves were smoking if it was not supposed to be. This reminded the adults that they were doing something that is not to be followed by children or others. The main idea in using children for this campaign was to make adults understand their actions was spoiling the upcoming generation. This campaign was in turn giving a ‘quit smoking’ brochure. The video also makes the audience feel not only about harmful effect of smoking as well as how it affects the people around them.
Tobacco companies should be prevented from using advertising tactics that target teenagers. There has always been controversy as to how tobacco companies should prevent using advertising tactics to target teenagers. As controversial as this is tobacco companies shouldn’t advertise teen smoking. Many teens may be lured to believe cigarette advertising because it has been part of the American Culture for years, magazine ads and the media target young people, and these companies receive a drastic increase financially; however, the advertising by these cigarette companies has disadvantages such as having to campaign against their own company, limiting their cigarette advertising and becoming a controversial dilemma as to encouraging teenagers to smoke. From billboards to newspaper advertisements, cigarette promotions started becoming part of the American Culture.
It is evident that today’s advertisements for teen clothing are neither healthy, nor ethical, to use as a way to attract teen consumers; however, companies are getting away with this behavior, because their effective and inappropriate advertisements are merely innuendos. The modern label placed on teens is said to be the primary contender for the cause of eating disorders, suicide, bullying, and depression. Fortunately, groups of teens are getting together to put an end to these unethical advertisements and the messages the ads give off to teens; because of their efforts, the amount of effect that advertisements have on teens now, may dramatically plummet sometime in the near future. In my opinion, it is crucial that us teens make a profound alteration to the way teen merchandise is advertised, which in turn will end the knavish behavior of clothing companies, and cease our judgmental society. It is evident that today’s advertisements for teen clothing are neither healthy, nor ethical, to use as a way to attract teen consumers; however, companies are getting away with this behavior, because their effective and inappropriate advertisements are merely innuendos.
Guns do not kill people; people kill people. Cigarettes do not kill people; people who choose to smoke are killing themselves. The health risks of using tobacco are common knowledge. It is a known fact that if someone smokes their chance of getting lung cancer is increased drastically, yet so many Americans choose to do so. The FDA is taking steps to tighten the rules of tobacco marketing, some of these rules will include prohibiting self-service tobacco displays in stores, restricting vending-machine sales, and forbidding most free samples of tobacco products.
According to US law adults have the right to smoke freely even though they should make cigarettes illegal because of the many deaths and problems they cause. Many people don’t know the real damage that tobacco product do to the human body. Imagine losing you voice box and having to get a hole cut into your esophagus for smoking too much. Or having to spend thousands of dollars on treatments for your lungs and mouth. Smoking not only affect you, but it also affects your children and future children.
Some believe that companies should have the right to advertise their products, even if they 've proven to be harmful for the consumer. When it comes to a product like cigarettes, there have been many studies about the toxic effects it can have on the user over a long period of time therefore banning advertising for such a product doesn 't seem unreasonable. In 2001, the Indian government proposed a bill that would ban tobacco advertising from sporting and cultural events, with the intention to lessen the appeal to the younger audience. This bill was met with much resistance from the Indian Tobacco Company because less advertising meant less tobacco sales which would hurt the industries bottom line. Also, this showed the government was making an ethical decision and putting the health of it 's people first, because it financially benefitted from taxation on the sale of cigarettes.
