I believe that the United States should ban smoking. Smoking is the number one cause of lung cancer and heart disease and it is taking the precious lives away from innocent people

The Tobacco factories make a big fortune from selling cigarettes. It’s to their benefit to sell more and more cigarettes every day. The way they can promote their product is by advertising. They brainwash the youth by advertising that smoking is cool. They enforce this idea into adults that smoking will take away your problems. By advertising and even giving out free samples they trap innocent people into smoking and soon after, these people get addicted. Even if they decide to quit they won’t be successful. Not only the factories benefit also the government gains profit from the high taxes on cigarettes. This is one of the many reasons the government doesn’t take any action to stop smoking.

There is more than 4000 toxic chemicals inside a cigarette which develops cancer. Also, the nicotine inside is very addictive. Smoking kills around 1.2 million people each year. Smoking gives many illnesses like breathing problems, heart conditions, oral cancer, high blood pressure, lung and colon cancer. Smoking is also very harmful to other people especially infants and elderly. People around a smoker can also smoke by second hand smoking. Each day, more than 3,200 people under 18 smoke their first cigarette, and approximately 2,100 youth and young adults become daily smokers.

Smoking cigarettes kills more Americans than alcohol, car accidents, suicide, AIDS, homicide, and illegal drugs combined. They are awful for the environment. Each year smoking is blamable for 430,000 deaths in America alone.

People who are pro smoking bring unacceptable reasons for their belief. Some say car accidents can kill people too, but we cannot stop driving. Driving is a necessity. Smoking is not essential to everyday life.
