It is said that “the tax hike would bring in an additional $326.7 million in annual revenue for a state that is operating under severe budget constraints”(Teague). If the tax on smoking goers up it can bring some of that money back in. The bad thing is that Americans are still losing more money from smoking than receiving. The Oklahoma City Bombing was a true tragedy. In the Bombing “ The dead would number 168, including 19 children”(Ripley).
Along with this, lack of interest in listening to adults, as well as disrespecting family members is an additional indicator of the negative effects alcohol use can have on teens. With the risk of poor academic performance, continued alcohol and/or drug addiction, and lack of motivation, the pressures of normal life may appear so overwhelming to some teens that in extreme cases suicide may even be considered. According to The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, data from 2006-2010 indicates that out of 4,3358 deaths of adolescents due to underage drinking, 492 were from
Baby boomers are the demographic cohort, known as the generation that makes up the substantial portion of the world’s population. Individuals born during the time of 1946 to 1964 has lived in environments where smoking lead to a detrimental impact in their later years. As the third leading cause of death, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is common among the older population. This disease is the leading cause of both morbidity and mortality. Leading to a consensus that older adults (particularly baby boomers) are at a great risk of COPD because they grew up in an era where smoking was fashionable, cigarettes were provided during the wars, and exposure to secondhand smoke was tremendous.
In order to give up smoking, people need to prepare themselves to face some consequences for eg; Stopping yourself from reaching your hand for a packet of cigarette. So it is very obvious when you ask a teenager not to smoke he or she will try it once, not intentionally but ‘out of curiousness’. For the conclusion,I would like to briefly go through the causes of smoking and also teenagers should be led to the right path. So some of the common reasons that I think encourage youth to smoke would be:- 1. Atmosphere influence:When people around you smoke,the desire of trying it yourself pops up in your mind.Also when your close friends want you try it and you calmly decline but deep inside you know that you want to try it really bad.This is also called curiousness.Kids these days tend to do stuff which they are strongly restricted to do just because they are ‘curious’ of the consequences.
Secondhand smoke is a cause of many children 's deaths all over the world. Children of parents who smoke are exposed to SHS and are more likely to become ill and even die suddenly. The image chosen shows the use of rhetoric through the use of ethos, pathos, and logos by its appeal to society. People perceive smoking as a sign of weakness; weakness as in that the addictive product can cause lives to end but the consumer is too negligent to see that. Therefore, parents who smoke, tend to forget about the secondhand smoke their kids inhale.
The American has average income spend less than $8 per person per day for their meals and beverages. Meanwhile, poor people just spend only $25 per person per week. This is a big gap in their cost of meal. The main cause is healthful diets cost more than unhealthful diets (Drewnowski & Darmon, 2005). Besides, America is the unhealthiest countries in the world.
Most of the time it is not the advertisement of tobacco it is the people that the teenagers are hanging out with or seeing somebody using a tobacco product. Teenagers would try to fit in a group so they would smoke because everybody in that group is smoking. They do not want to be left out or get made fun of if they do not smoke. Most of teenagers smoke so they look cool because they think people will respect them. Also teenagers use a tobacco product if they saw their parents using it because they would think that it is okay to use because their parents are smoking
Therefore, reducing the number of smokers is a public health priority. Yet, studies on smoking behavior among teens are rare in most Asian countries. Minja, et al (2004) identified the following significant risk factors for adolescent tobacco use: smoking among friends and siblings, poor academic performance, being older, being male, working, and having parents who were separated. Also, studies on the effects of a school-based intervention program on smoking behavior in Indonesia are rare, with the most recent a study focusing on the implementation of school-based smoking prevention and cessation programs in Aceh Province, Indonesia resulted the tailoring program interventions with participants’ religion background information may provide additional benefits to Islamic school based intervention (Tahlil, et.al,
Two actions could helps us achieve this: First, there should be better educations and to adults and new generations warning them about the effects marijuana has on their health. Most people that smoke marijuana do not have enough knowledge or are not educated, and therefore do not know about the bad effects marijuana has on their health. Education is very important; teenagers are at a danger growing up. Hanging out with friends that might have bad influence on them. The only way to keep them away from the danger of marijuana is to teach them and explain what marijuana could do to their health.
The main reason for the decline in tourism to New York was the issue on security and terrorism. In order to get extensive security this places a price on the world economy in the terms of a decline in productivity growth and more restrictions in the free shipping of goods, services and capital. In the following three months after 9/11 attack, cost the city’s economy 143,000 jobs and a $2.8 billion in lost wages, which led to effects on unemployment issues.

These examples show that the 9/11 attack had a domino effect on New York City spending budget in the way that a loss of a source of revenue in area is the loss in another.
This is a mockery to those living in extreme poverty. It is estimated that around 175 billion US dollars would be necessary to end world poverty. In place of the industry that kills around 500 000 people annually in the US, this money could be contributed towards the evident catastrophe that causes nearly half of the world 's population to live in poor conditions. The cigarette industry depends on the nicotine (an addictive additive which can lead to the development of nicotine tolerance. This means that the affected person needs to use nicotine regularly to maintain normal brain function) to expect returning customers to pay more money to satisfy their addictions.

(American Society of Addiction Medicine, 2013). Peer pressure is largely harped on by anti-smoking campaigns, and is an important aspect for many people who start to smoke. Socioeconomic status is significant attribute that can provide insight to the peer pressure a young person may feel.
