Should there be a ban on tobacco advertising?
If they ban advertising then that is one step closer to banning the whole thing. so with that said here is another question : would it be ageinst the freedom to make your own life choices cause people are telling you what to do with your life? IF YOU CHOSE TO SMOKE FINE THAT IS YOUR CHOICEBUT DON'T QUIT CAUSE STANGERS ARE TELLING YOU. YOU SHOULD ONLY QUIT IF YOU CHOOSE TO QUIT.

yes tobacco is bad for you. they shouldn't advertise it. it just makes people want to smoke.

Well people who smoke would probably say no. Those who dont smoke would probably say yes. This question can go either way, yes or no. Its a good question, and since im in between on the issue I cant really say either yes or no.

absolutely not,if you do that,then there should be a ban on advertising on ALL THINGS THAT ARE BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH LIKE,alcohol,beef,the sun,prescription drugs,rush hour traffic,sugary cola,fast food,caffeine,ANYTHING detrimental to health.

The liberal would say yes, but the bottom line is that this is a free country and if people want to smoke it should be their right. If smoking is legal, the advertising should be legal as well.

There already is! What they should be doing now is banning all alcohol commercials on television.Be it Beer,whiskey or wine,etc.... A smoker can smoke a pack of cigs & still drive safely.A drunk can have a six pack & go out & kill a family of 6 traveling to see Grandma for the holidays!

Uh, no. Tobacco is not illegal. Alcohol isn't, and it's addicting, causes death. They are legal drugs.LEGAL. No you shouldn't do it, it does lead to a shorter life, but we're in America.
