Military Banning Smoking?



"A new study commissioned by the Pentagon and the Department of Veterans Affairs recommends a complete ban on tobacco, which would end tobacco sales on military bases and prohibit smoking by anyone in uniform, not even combat troops in the thick of battle." ARTICLE

Do you think the military should ban smoking?
  • No
83%
  • Yes
17%

Although this would be almost impossible to implement, it does make sense. There are some jobs that require you to be at your best, like astronauts etc. I think the military is included in that category. Smoking is limiting their physical potential. I only smoked for about a year and just quit this week, so far so good. I never understood why people smoked until i started, it's literally an addiction and gains you nothing. I think it's your choice to smoke or not, but you shouldn't. And if it's banned in the military it's good for everyone involved.

I think they should be allowed to smoke if they want to, but not while on duty. It's detrimental to their endurance and concentration.

It would be a very difficult argument to say that it's going to be better for the soldiers to smoke, then to not...
