Ban Tobacco

To the editor:

The article about smoking and poverty by the Interior Health Authority was excellent. I hope tobacco addicts can at least stop smoking for one day and maybe some of them will try to quit all together. Their addiction not only affects themselves but all of us as well. Not only is there all the associated costs that could be avoided altogether in health care, but there is also the affect that second hand smoke has on non-smokers.

These range from the injurious affects of second hand smoke, to the horrible smell that drifts into other people air space or clings to vehicles and dwellings, and to forest fires and fatal house fires. It is tragic that these people are a slave to a plant and that they are causing all of this damage and injury to themselves and others. Tobacco should be banned and tobacco addicts should be helped until they can get through their withdrawal.

-M.G.
