Since 1991, Singapore has been increasing the tax of tobacco to discourage smoking (Lim, 2004). Cigarette packs also have pictures of the harmful effects of smoking, such as, throat cancer, miscarriage. Schools are also encouraged to have smoking cessation interventions so that adolescents will not pick up smoking, instead of thinking that they can quit anytime. While Singapore has all these policies and prohibitions in place, it has been found that it does not make that big of an impact on individuals that smoke (Subramaniam et al., 2015). Subramaniam and colleagues (2015) found that social influence played a central role in the initiation of smoking, and that adolescents with family members that smoke, are more likely to pick up the habit.
According to Tackling Tobacco Action on Smoking and Disadvantage, there are many effects of smoking to social and personal aspects of a smoker such as social stigma and isolation, lack of freedom and dependency. Some smokers feel that they are being looked down on. As smoking rates decline, many people do not want to be exposed to other peoples’ smoke and are intolerant of smoking. This social unacceptance is likely to increase as the number of smokers continues to drop. Having to worry about where you can go and whether you can smoke.
It’s quite unfortunate that several people choose to leave vaping altogether just because of that incident. What’s the Deal With ‘Vaper’s Cough?’ Smokers must realize one thing about vaping: it is not the same as smoking a cigarette. If you have smoked for so long, your lungs have become used (to a certain extent) to the burning tobacco’s fumes. The ‘smoke’ that vapes pump out isn’t smoke from something that’s burned. When people inhale vapor, the body reacts to the new substance by coughing it out.
Having a comprehensive plan that covers all these components can have effects that go on to help prevent smoking in current and future generations. It is important that current smokers have proper programs designed to help them quit smoking. Banning smoking only helps the people that do not smoke while ignoring the fact that many people are heavily addicted to tobacco. Another way that the plan is successful is because it reduces student exposure to smoking. In a study done by Dr. Amanda Fallin, found that “past 30-day smoking was highest (19%) among students on campuses with designated smoking areas…compared to 10% to 12% on campuses with other policies” (Fallin et al., 1098).
Is smoking still a problem? Sadly, it is a major problem that is at the danger of getting worse with the introduction of e-cigarettes..

Smoking is actually illegal for those who are younger then 18 since this can lead to health problems early in life.

Cigarette ad companies spend approximately $8.95 billion on cigarette advertising and promoting a year. On the flip side just a sixteenth of that amount promotes smoking as a hazard. Although smoking is usually depicted as a cool and enjoyable experience, this ad shows the negative effects of smoking. The ad has a unique way of putting a sense of fear in the viewer and gives smokers a straightforward message to beware of the risk that smoking brings. The background displays black, but has a light that shines dully from the bottom left corner, almost resembling the light of a lit candle or something burning.

The Comtex News Network in The Dangers of E-Cigarettes/Vaping states, “E-cigs are likely safer than tobacco cigarettes, but the long-term effects are unknown.”(4) There are many chemicals in e-liquids that aren’t contained in cigarettes. Vapes are perceived to be safer than cigarettes but in most cases just as harmful. A lot of younger kids and teens are using e-cigs/vapes because the cool “clouds” they make but in reality the kids have no clue what they’re actually inhaling. Recent studies have shown they have the potential to weaken the immune system and cause inflammation and cell damage.

Does it address a demand or access issues? Increasing the minimum age of tobacco products will lead to reductions in both smoking prevalence and cigarette consumption among smokers, especially among adolescents and young adults. Access will be decreased to minors and 18-20 year olds who already smoke have to be forced to quit. In all likelihood, the majority of this population would attempt to purchase tobacco products illegally through retailer or black market channel (SB-151 Tobacco Products, n.d.). These access issues align with the goals of this legislation by decreasing accessibility to this target population.

Tobacco cigarettes have many harmful carcinogens while e-cigarettes have little to none. “Constituents of cigarette smoke that harm health -- including carcinogens -- are either absent in e-cigarette vapour or, if present, they are mostly at levels much below 5% of smoking doses (mostly below 1% and far below safety limits for occupational exposure).” (Galloway). As a result, e-cigarettes produce less carcinogens than tobacco cigarettes and are less harmful than tobacco cigarettes and as a result of this reduce the risk of cancer in smokers. E-cigarettes also only produce aldehydes, an organic compound formed by the oxidation of alcohols, under certain conditions while tobacco cigarettes produce aldehydes when one is lit. “Under certain conditions, e-cigarettes may release high levels of aldehydes, aldehydes including Formaldehyde’(Methanol)`are released in tobaccos and contribute to its toxicity.
