Written By : Allen Lockington Lautoka . We have enacted laws preventing children from buying tobacco products because smoking is a useless and filthy habit.
How can we curb this filthy habit? I suggest we simply close the factory down then outlaw the manufacture of tobacco products.
Life imprisonment would be a good penalty with no parole.
But the government depends on excise duty from this product for the upkeep of our hospitals where those affected by the bad effects of tobacco products can go to get treatment.
