Smoking and tobacco use is socially accepted, why is it so heavily legislated?

0

Although tobacco use is seen as socially accepted, the majority of Saskatchewan people do not use tobacco products. Legislation, like the ban on tobacco use on school grounds, reinforces the fact that tobacco use is not the norm in our province. Tobacco has a harmful effect on the health of Saskatchewan people. It is widely recognized that smoking contributes to significant health problems for smokers and those exposed to second-hand smoke. Also, commercial tobacco is a drug. Other drugs (i.e. illicit drugs, alcohol, prescription drugs) are regulated as well and many times are not permitted in school or other public venues.
