What is the logical explanation behind this? Who made this decision that it should not be consumed? Today there is a lot of material way worse than marijuana and they are legal. There is no reason that a matter which can use in medical ways considered as illegal. Illegality of marijuana does not makes it unreachable and there is still a lot of people using and selling it.
Nicotine is not harmful to the human body unless ingested in large amounts. Despite the different types of cigarette manufacturers most cigarettes are produced the same way. The amount of nicotine contained in cigarettes ranges from 8 mg to 20 mg of nicotine but most cigarettes have an average amount of 12 mg of nicotine. This is not however the amount ingested by the consumer. A smoker ingests 1 mg of nicotine from smoking one cigarette.
By doing this way, people will know about the health problem that can be happened when they smoke too much cigarettes. As the report from the WHO report, the Data 1 which is the Production of Graphic Warning Labels in Canada Increases Smokers’ Intention to Quit, it has shown that there is a large different between users’ who quit before and after the announcement of warning labels on the packages that 87% of smokers’ intention to quit after the announcement of package warning compared to just only 20% to the smoker who quit before its introduction (WHO Report on the Global Tobacco Epidemic, 2011). Clearly, as the number in the data keep continuing to increase, this solution will be more effective as part of the cigarettes usage
Introduction Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI) is an international corporation 82,000 employees strong that produce and distribute cigarettes and tobacco outside the United States of America since 2008. Their products are sold in over 180 markets, with a substantial cigarette market share at 15.5% worldwide and sports 6 of the world’s top 15 international cigarette brands - most famous of which is Marlboro, the world 's number one cigarette brand since 1972 (PMI 2015). Naturally a controversial company due to the nature of their business, PMI is constantly under public scrutiny, with many criticising that the company’s operations contribute to smoking-related illnesses and deaths. Sethi and Steidlmeier (1995) note that “in today’s pluralistic
It has been proven that smoking tobacco is bad for general health but vaping on the other hand is much safer compared to traditional tobacco smoking because there is no burning involved in the production of the vapour. Thus, there is no presence of tar or carbon monoxide which have been some of the main substances present in tobacco smoke that are known to lead to various diseases. Also, e-cigarettes pose less very little, if any, health threats to secondary smokers. Most second-hand smoke that comes from cigarettes is produced via sidestream smoke that comes from the burning tip of the cigarette. E-cigarettes do not generate sidestream aerosol and as such, it is what is exhaled by the
It 's not. Unlike tobacco, there are no chemicals in marijuana that cause a "physical" addiction to the substance; rather, it 's the sensation that you feel from smoking weed that is "psychologically" addictive. While this doesn 't necessarily make it any easier for someone to quit smoking marijuana (and sometimes it can even be harder), it 's important to know the difference. People don 't crave marijuana because they "need" it; they crave it because they "want" it. With this being the case, it 's more of a psychological problem and a solution has to be approached from that angle.
It resembled a regular cigarette in appearance and worked pretty much as the cig-a-like electronic cigarette you probably noticed back in 2006. Gilbert’s patent did not impress the tobacco industry and it was slowly forgotten. And the concept itself stayed forgotten until 2006 when Hon Lik, a researcher from Chine, released the first modern electronic cigarette out into the world. So now that we know a bit more about the history of electronic cigarettes let us dissect them further and take a look at what their modern counterparts are all about. Parts of an electronic cigarette Electronic cigarette consists of several parts that allow it to function properly.
However, by articles saying that it does not contain tobacco but nicotine contradicts its self because it will still give the same affect that a traditional cigarette with tobacco.. Although it contains nicotine it seems not to be as harmful as a traditional cigarette would. The long term health results do not seem to show the same symptoms as of a traditional cigarette would
In reality I know that just because tobacco isn’t advertised doesn’t mean adults are not going consume it. In fact the Indian Market Research Bureau conducted a survey in 1998, which asked smokers what influenced their decision to start smoking. The results showed “49% of the respondents said they started smoking to see what it was like, 24% said 'all my friends smoke'; and no one said advertising had induced them to start smoking.” (Ban on Tobacco, 2001) Therefore it seems that if the government’s intent was based on the publics health, the best approach to decrease smoking would be to an out right ban on its sale and consumption. Without doing this people will still decide to smoke regardless of a lack of advertising or known health risks. It seems unfair to single out one industry like tobacco when there are much worse dangers created by polluters.
According to Hong Kong Council on Smoking and Health (2016) there are 0.2% of primary school students and 2.7% of secondary school students who smoke. This show that there are alarming numbers of smokers among young people and this problem should not be ignored as these young smokers have the influence among teenagers leading to an increase in the number of young smokers. The ban of selling cigarettes can reduce the number of young smokers even more which leads to a small or even zero smoking population in the future. In recent decade, Hong Kong has face a serious problem in population aging, this problem will worsen if the next generation has a large population are smokers or die from smoking. Fewer people have to provide for a large amount of old people.
