How about banning cigarettes?

January 20, 2012

The recent article about smoking is no different that 1,000 other articles written about the dangers of smoking ("Up in smoke," Jan. 19). It amazes me that this product is still legal. If anything in this world is certain, the suffering smoking is causing is preventable. Smoking should be outlawed. Usually smokers rationalize, saying it is their life and they will smoke, so the warning on cigarette packs are useless.

The reason I quit was evidence that my smoking was harming others. Maybe a cigarette pack should warn: Your smoking is harming your family and friends.
