An argument of the opposing side was that adults who smoke do so by their own free will and with this ban the government was exercising that right for them. The CEO of Equus Advertising, Suhel Seth argued that the ban was just “a typical knee-jerk reaction by any government to create some kind of popularity for itself”. Another argument opposing the ban highlighted the economic gains from tobacco and the impact it would have on the country. The tobacco industry provides millions of people with jobs directly and indirectly and these people would be affected from such a ban. This belief was not supported though, as a study on tobacco consumption and employment revealed that the policies to be implemented for reducing tobacco consumption were more like to create more jobs.
However, an awareness of the problem has only emerged since it has become known what an enormous public health, threat smoking represents and what an economic strain it puts on health insurance companies as a whole. Smoking is no longer accepted as a matter of course. The mood has changed.  It has been recognised that smoking is part of the environmental problem. At the first European tobacco conference in 1988 in Madrid the World Health Organization (WHO) passed a "Charter against Tobacco" which states "air free of tobacco smoke is an essential part of our basic right to healthy and unpolluted
Seitz et al., conclude that policies are not effective at preventing smoking which makes it seem as if there is no point in even regulating no-smoke zones. However, the study also mentions a possibility that a stricter smoking policy could have different results. In a similar study done by Harris et al., the research goes beyond simply counting cigarette litter by introducing varying levels of smoking control to
Ethics in Regards to the Ban on Tobacco Ads by the Government of India The ban on tobacco ads by the Indian Government surely raises many concerns and ethical arguments going back and forth. There are those that strongly support such a ban, and there are those that strongly oppose it. They each have differing views and counter arguments to arguments presented. I plan to summarize each view in support of and against the ban, discuss the conflict of interest as it pertains to the government of India, as well as give my opinion on what governments should do in regards to tobaccoadvertising. The first thing I plan to do is summarize the arguments in favor of the ban on tobacco advertising by the government of India.
Smoking assignment A So there’s this debate going on whether University of Minnesota is taking smoking a bit too seriously. They are considering banning smoking completely, even off campus. Here’s what the viewers don’t like. They don’t think smoking should be banned, because it’s a state school, therefore the state controls it and they’re basically trying to ban something that’s been legal for hundred years. Just because smoking is bad for you doesn’t necessarily mean it kills you, as Drew Findling states in the video “We can’t be too overprotected”, whom also states that a leaded pencils is dangerous.
For example, the novel Fahrenheit 451 is a real book. Though the dystopian worlds and the modern American world, both have the existence of books, they treat the books differently. The society in the novel destroys books. The citizens do not like books because they think books cause everyone to be hurt by words in the them and that’s why the government wants to keep individuals away from it. “‘Do you ever read any of the books you burn?’ He laughed.

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury emphasis his belief on censorship and how the future society will be if authority controls the daily aspect of life. Ray Bradbury does this by not allowing anyone to own or read a book, because the society believes that books provide the citizen with unnecessary and false thoughts, if the person is caught with books your whole house is burned and then the individual will be incarcerated. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 expresses the dangers of censorship through limiting the citizens access to knowledge, removing Constitutional Rights, and establishing a realistic allegory similar to today’s society. There are many dangers how censorship limits citizens access to knowledge in many ways. One danger that people could face is not knowing what we see on the news or in the newspaper’s is actually true, and what people say just to cover themselves up or make someone else look good in the person’s eyes.
Tobacco is a lethal product that countries try to reduce the consumption. Around the world, many countries apply smoking bans, but smoking bans’ history is not new. One of the first applications of smoking ban was in Ottoman Empire. Sultan Murat IV banned smoking across the country in 1633 (Cutler, 2007). The punishment for breaking the ban was death (Ibid.).
“Sin taxes” are a type of excise tax levied on harmful products such as alcohol or tobacco. One of cigarette taxes’ purposes is to reduce smoking habits. However, what seems like a simple solution to generate revenue for the government and deter a harmful habit has social consequences that cannot be overlooked. Because cigarette taxes are currently regressing society by hurting low-income smokers and encouraging smuggling in the United States, they should either be revoked, or the generated revenue should be used to fund health organizations. The World Health Organization (WHO), a branch of the United Nations concerned with public health, claims that cigarette taxes should be authorized because they prevent smoking related deaths.
