Why is cigarette smoking socially acceptable?


Why is cigarette smoking socially acceptable even though it's been proven to kill people, yet other substances that are medically beneficial, natural and can cure health issues, are stated as illegal and frowned upon?

    Thanks for your input! I believe it is more socially acceptable oversees, but I find that even in North America, people have a tendency of tolerating it as opposed to other substances, which baffles me.

    Unfortunately I still know many who smoke, even after knowing the dangers and risks. Even while smoking outside, that non-smokers still get plenty of second hand smoke which can be worse than smoking yourself. Thanks for your input :)

    See, I've found that marijuana smokers are the ones who are looked down upon and thought of as stupid, while the same people who think/say those things will ignore and pass by a cigarette smoker "accepting" what they are doing. Thanks for your input!
