    If cigarettes are so lethal should we ban them instead of providing graphic warnings?

    Tomorrow sees the start of a new regime of graphic warnings on cigarette packs. This begs the question why a product so lethal and so unfit for ingestion into the human body should be permitted at all?

    Were this logic to be expanded then toxic foods would be permitted for sale and consumption with a warning.

    Then there is the moral issue of the State making massive revenues form the sale of toxic cigarettes through excise duties.

    One argument for permitting their sale is to supply those already hooked. Then why allow new customers to get hooked by legally allowing their sale?

    That's the second time today you've started a thread after I'd already created a similar one.

    How in Gods name are we supposed to succeed in banning them.

    And why is it that some people are always trying to ban things and make people be good.

    Ask a mod to merge then. It clogs up the main page.
