Nerys Ghemor -- We were able to at least get some of the advertising banned, but still not quite all of it here in the States. sad.gif We do have the warnings on tobacco products, though.
Kejal -- And those funny "Smoking can kill you"-notes on every cigarette pack.
Kejal -- You have a point there. I was pretty impressed with our government when, against those companies' wishes, cigarette advertising became illegal. I think it was the first great step in the direction of smoking becoming less and less popular. Then we got stricter age restrictions and anti-smoking laws.
Kejal -- I think it is. Not always and by everyone, of course, but I at least have no general complaints. Except perhaps that in the area I live in atm people aren't taking care of other pedestrians. They stop in the middle of the way, block the moving stairway, etc. But I blame it on having moved to a rural area; It was different in the big city I used to live in. (Yet still not as awesome as London, also from my limited impression)
Nerys Ghemor -- I imagine it will take many years for it to happen, because the tobacco companies are very powerful and seem to have a lot of influence with the government. But my hope is that someday young people who have not grown up with smoking being as ubiquitous and normal will put pressure on the government to change that. The state of California, which is usually the first with such laws, is either trying to get tougher restrictions on public smoking passed, or already has.
