Why Should Smoking Be Illegal Essay

  • Please Take Away Smoking To Save A Life

    I am doing an essay for school and thought I'd pick this topic. I strongly disagree when people say it's not a harm. Apparently, from the research I've gotten, you can get 14 types of cancer from it. I am probably not as old as everyone else here and I do not know as much. My age will not be said but just because I am younger doesn't mean I can't state my opinion. Not only is smoking dangerous for the smoker, it is dangerous for the people around them. They can get the cancers the smoker gets. They can die just as fast as the smoker can. Smoking causes many problems and can harm many people.

  • It hurts the environment!!!!

    Smoking doesn’t only affect the person who smokes; it actually affects the surrounding environment greatly. In fact, smoke and cigarette butts affect our environment the most resulting in land, air, and water pollution. Even the production of making cigarettes affects the environment. After hearing this, don’t you think that smoking should be illegal?
    Some smokers are unaware of smoking polluting the environment. Smokers are actually one of the direct contributors to environmental pollution. They breathe in about 4000 chemicals from the cigarette, and then breathed out into our environment. Think about it. That’s 4000 chemicals into our environment that doesn’t need to be there. If we all stop smoking, those 4000 chemicals will no longer be in the environment.
    The production of making cigarettes has a very big affect on our environment. Instead of using the land to grow tobacco, we could be using that land to grow food for the third world countries in the Middle East and Africa. Plus, tobacco plants sometimes carry pests and diseases, so tobacco farmers spray different chemicals on the plants to kill the pests and diseases. These sprays can be very harmful to the environment.
    The cigarettes are packaged and rolled in lots paper. This means that lots of trees are being torn down to make a product that will just destroy the environment even more. That’s a lose–lose situation. Trees are being wasted!! Fact is it takes one tree to produce 300 cigarettes.
    Some cigarettes take 18 months to 10 years to biodegrade, and some may never biodegrade. Think about what’s that doing to our environment! Did you know that worldwide, 2.1 billion pounds of garbage each year is generated from cigarette filters?! That’s a lot!
    If you take a look on the sidewalk, in the grass, and in the gutter, I will guarantee you that you will see a cigarette. These cigarettes on the ground can be harmful to many animals worldwide.

  • Its just wrong

    If you had a gun and you were shooting yourself in the foot and a policeman saw you, would he let you continue? NO! He would stop you and say that you not only endangering your life, but everyone else who is around you! You not only doing yourself harm, but also others. I find it very selfish.

  • Yes smoking should be illegal

    It should be illegal because it is bad for you and you get addicted to it just like drugs and it can kill you slowly but it will. That is why I think smoking should be illegal and you should support people to quit smoking because like I said before it will kill you.

  • You can have heart attacks.

    My dad had a heart attack because of smoking, and he quit right after that. Also, my grandfather got over it, and now his lung is messed up. So, it should be banned because people are just hurting themselves. And who would let people do that? Also, they are wasting all of their money on smoking.

  • Smoking should be illegal!

    I am allergic to cigarette smoke and find it hard to breathe sometimes. The smell is putrid as well, and its very bad for the person smoking and worse for those around him/her. One cigarette contains over 4,000 toxic chemicals which enter your body as poisons, and there are more for the people around you because it is unfiltered for them.

  • Smoking SHOULD be illegal.

    Smoking should be illegal for everyone. If you smoke you are pretty much setting yourself up for an early death and possibly cancer. People should't have the choice, it should be illegal. Family's lose members everyday because of people who smoke and get cancer. Its just sad. PLEASE DO NOT SMOKE.

  • The ugly truth

  • People die every year

    I am a kid that doesn't want to die because of smoking and all that. This crisis will END! The world 🌎 needs your help, people. The world will not turn into a place where people everywhere are saying "hey, that dudes smoking. It looks cool let's do it too!" That is not what I want to see out

  • Harms not only the smoker but others

    Smokers can smoke all they want if they were only harming themselves. But this is not true. Smoking not only affects the smoker but other people and the environment as well. Other non-smokers are inhaling the harmful chemicals. It is killing others. Many smokers throws away the cigarette butts on the ground everywhere. This act of littering is harming the environment and many different species. The harmful chemicals released into the environment leads to pollution and poor air quality for people to breathe.
