    Cigarettes kill; 400,000 people die prematurely every year from smoking. When we analyze the harm from drugs, there is no doubt that cigarettes are the worst.

    They kill more people than cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and all other illegal drugs combined.

    More than 800,000 people are arrested every year for marijuana, the vast majority for possession, yet all the data from studies that compare the two substances show that cigarettes are more harmful to an individual's health. If we make these other drugs illegal, shouldn't we outlaw the leading killer?

    Considering how we deal with less harmful drugs, making cigarettes illegal seems logical. Over the past decade, we have seen, in states from California to New York, increasing restrictions on when and where people can smoke -- and even momentum toward tobacco prohibition.

    Smoking is banned in bars and restaurants and on some university campuses. People can now be fired from their jobs because they can't give up smoking. We have seen parents denied adoption rights if they smoke. In some cities, it is nearly impossible to smoke anywhere besides your own home.

    Haha what and piss off over billion smokers? yeah try it mate. I am fully aware of the risks of smoking, I do NOT smoke around non smokers. I enjoy my cigarettes why should I stop? and why shouldn't I be aloud to do it? I's MY life and MY choice.

    I personally don't smoke but we live in a free country, so I don't think tobacco should be illegal. I also don't think pot should be illegal. I think pot is better than alcohol.

    No, however smoking should be banned in public areas across every state.

    A person has the right to poison themselves, but they don't have the right to poison others.

    I have no opinion to marijuana use.

    Well, smoking in general is bad. I think eating weed is okay, though (candy, brownies, etc.). And if you're gonna ban tobacco, you might as well ban alcohol. Both are way worse than weed.
