Dead on, Yan. As long as a product is legal, you should have the right to advertise it. One the one hand, governments pass anti-tobacco legislation, but on the other hand they make billions on taxes and duties from the sale of tobacco and alcohol. Can someone offer a better example of shamefaced hypocrisy?

I'm not saying smoking is good, of course it isn't. Any idiot with half a brain knows it's bad for you. But it should be up to the individual (and parents, in the case of minors) to decide whether they want to smoke or not.
