English Corner 2: Ban on smoking completely? Please stop selling cigarettes!

Undoubtedly, smoking is harmful to our health. However, the smoking problem in Hong Kong still exists. In addition, this problem becomes very serious. Some youngsters also start smoking and the Hong Kong smokers is now increasing.

What did the Government do to fight against smoking in the past days? They just told us to stop smoking by give publicity to us through TV and newspapers. They also suggested the restaurants to set up a non-smoking area. Surprisingly, they never stopped selling cigarettes.

Recently, the Government is planning to force the tobacco companies to print six types of harmful pictures on their cigarette packings. However, I think this method is useless and it is a waste of money. Why don't ban the tobacco companies from producing cigarettes and stop selling cigarettes?
