I agree , that smokers should pay high taxes for cigarettes.
Cigarettes are unhealthy, but everything is for people. In my opinion we can drink alcohol , smok cigarettes , take a drags. More and more people use from this things. Our national budgete can increase. Mayby, a high taxes encourage people to stop buy this things .

I believe that smokers are a nuisance to other people but higher taxes for cigarettes doesn't solved the problems with them. For exapmple my grandma smoked all live. When she lived prices for cigarettes had been higher and higher and she didnt stop smoke So I think that it will not help.

Hi, everyone. In my opinion, I think smokers should pay high taxes for cigarettes. Because smoking lead to many diseases such as heart attack and respiratory system deceases. And smoke may end up as some sever problems. as the matter of fact, if the smoker pay more higher taxes for cigarettes, maybe they will stop smoking, and then there are many problems will slow quick.

I disagree that smokers should pay high taxes.
Cigarettes are unhealthy, but anything would be harmful if you had too much. Like sugars, people like them and think they're fine for their body, but if people eat too much, they will get all kinds of illness.There are a lot of people who smoke a lot, and at the same time, they know the risk that causes. By rising cigarettes in high price can decrease the amount that people bought, who knows they are not buying it illegally? In many countries, the aggravating trend of the increasing aging population, have slowly caused the productivity decrease. There will be too much of elder. In a cruel way, they are mostly of useless, and they are wasting the resources. And cigarettes can cause many harmful consequences, like cancer such things, which can decrease the population. So for all what I have been talking about is that people should have the freedom of choosing what they want to do and have the same opportunity to buy all kinds of things.

I disagree with this, because nowadays there are thousands of people are the smokers. Although I am not a smoker, but I know that cigarettes are harmful and it will kill you. If you are the smokers and you notice need to pay high taxes for cigarettes, will you gonna buy it? The answer is Yes. Because you cannot control yourself and the cigarettes just like drug, maybe it can keep some who enjoyed cigarettes but you never stop those people who take cigarettes as second life.

I think this is a great idea.
high taxes indeed reduce the consumers of cigarettes. Smoking can affect a person's health and may even kill a person, so the benefits of paying high taxes for cigarettes to this society are enormous.
I do not know whether high taxes of cigarettes will increase crimes or not, because some of people they will rob someone because they do not have enough money to buy a cigarette, but anyway I think high taxes of cigarettes is a really really great idea.

Personally speaking, I totally agree the statement. Cigarettes are harmful to our body and causing diseases such as lung cancer. Also, cigarettes are addictive. If someone constantly smoking, it is hard for him to give up this bad habit. In addition, second-hand-cigraettes are disruptive to others around the smoker. Therefore, due to these reasons, I believe the high taxes for cigarette are necessary. ;-)
