Ban the But (Ban Smoking in Australia)

This petition had 39 supporters

Malcom Turnbull,

Every year in Australia smoking is the reason for around 16,000 deaths, and it puts thousands more in hospital. This devastating drug is destroying tens of thousands of lives each year and its time we stopped it, once and for all.

Many say that there's no point in banning smoking and that it is their choice alone. However, it isn't just the smokers who are affected. The children and other relatives of the smokers are affected as well, whether it's from passive smoking or passing on bad habits. Although these people choose the healthier option in life they are still being affected. Every year hundreds of people die from passive smoking through no fault of their own. Whether it is an innocent bystander, a young child or an older parent, smoking may kill those who have never lit a cigarette in their life.

The smokers themselves are not entirely to blame, it is the addictive nicotine. This forces smokers to buy more and more cigarettes, making it almost impossible to quit. The health and wellbeing of Australians is at risk due to the selfish cigarette producers who only care about profits and not the deadly drug that they sell.

This is enough, its time to ban the butt. Sign my petition and rid smoking forever.
