      There are some pretty powerful pictures in this hub. I know a lot of smokers though and in the end all the scare tactics in the world won't force them to quit. It's a powerful addiction and I wish all the luck in the world to those trying to stop.

      The government may have been doing decisive actions regarding this but maybe they are thinking also about violating the liberty of the people who wants to smoke.
