Stop tobacco business
The use of any tobacco product has both immediate and long-term effects on human health and overall well-being. Tobacco stains and wears down teeth, causes gums to recede (peel back) and produces mouth sores. Bad breath is also a common problem. Over time, the use of tobacco can cause mouth cancer. Nicotine from tobacco also raises blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and can increase your risk of having a heart attack.
Despite knowing this harmful effect people are addicted to it.
However, instead of increasing VAT on tobacco, to save our youth, it would be right step to stop the business of tobacco companies. When companies sell, they make a profit but we lose our pretention youths. Therefore, it would be a right decision.
