Do you think cigarettes (or anything containing smoke/nicotine) should be made illegal?

I am not necessarily for or against this, so please don't jump my shit. But you'd think something nicknamed "cancer sticks" would have been taken off the market a long time ago. At what point does the health risk to the general public outweigh the profit gain for the companies?

  • I wasn't alive back then :D But like I said, I am not necessarily *for* or *against* this.

    I am just interested in seeing what other people think.

  • Of course then we can look at how we have NO drug problems since they are illegal.

  • There are a lot of products on the market that causes something or other.

  • *sigh* Do you ever answer questions without being condescending? Just a yes or no would have been fine.

  • I have a feeling this post is going to show why you should have to take a test to vote.

  • Some questions need a bit of analyzing to point out the absurdity of the question.

  • I don't think it should be made illegal. If it were to be made illegal, then I think the booze should be made illegal too. I just don't think it really works to make drugs illegal anyway (meaning any drug like nicotine, I'm not advocating the legalization of cocaine or anything) because then people would just keep doing it anyway and hiding it, just like with weed....or booze during the prohibition.
