I buy tobacco, because I smoke. The Government collects revenue from this which goes towards supporting our services such as NHS etc.This includes INTERNATIONAL AID. If this revenue wasn't collected, income tax would go up for EVERYONE. At the same time, there are many plantation workers making a living (at whatever level) and supporting their families. If everyone stops smoking (as seems to be the trend / intention from various direction), income tax would increase due to the lose of source...

If everyone stops smoking (as seems to be the trend / intention from various direction), income tax would increase due to the lose of source & would more than likely increase duty on other items / commodities. At the same time, the plantation workers would be out of work, so more aid would be sent from governments. Then we have a problem... we haven't got enough in the pot to maintain the amount of aid, how is this solved another increase on revenues & tax in order to pay it. Consequently, is it not cheaper for the country to smoke & use revenue from that to keep certain duties down for the rest. Therefore by the rules of advocate, smokers are helping to keep costs down to the complete population as well al keeping plantation workers in a job to support their families!!!!!!!

Garry Reid "the plantation workers would be out of work" - in actual fact the ground would still need workers to work whatever crop the now-available ground would be used for!!!

Garry Reid What I find amusing is they raise the prices of cigarettes everytime we turn around. The cigarette companies are putting posion in the cigarettes without people knowing and keeping it from the Gov. This is WRONG! The cigarettes you smoke today, are not the same cigarettes you were smoking in 1970 or 1980. I believe that everytime they raise the price of cigarettes, they need to raise the price of, ALCHOHOL. Then you would see them all shut-up. Drinking KILLS!! ...

Cigarettes should be considered a drug because the addiction level to them are the exact same as a schedule class I, II, and III drug. Raise the price of Alchohol!!

My mom was a smoker for about 40 years. I still don't know where she found the strength to quit cold turkey but she did. Unfortunatley the damage was already done and she developed COPD. If you want to watch something that will break your heart, just know someone who has COPD and watch them slowly die. Never smoked. Not stupid enough to start.

If people want to smoke let them. Its banned in public places, the warnings are there. So what's the problem.
Charge people a higher premium for midicare if they smoke as the risk is higher, but in the end the individual must decide. People want to ban everything because some people are irresponsible. Whatevere happened to free choice. A non smoker.

Sure tobacco is bad for you, but ultimately it is the smokers choice to smoke each cigarette. I am a smoker and I have been redundantly informed of the. Onsequences. The tobacco industry isn't selling tobacco because they want to harm people, they are selling a consumer staple for which there is a steady demand and long standing industrial infrastructure to meet that demand in a profitable manner. If society really detests the habit so much they should illegalize the sale of tobacco...
