Cigarettes Expected to be Banned by 2020

It comes as no surprise to us that smoking cigarettes has a number of adverse health effects on the body including lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, bronchitis, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, mouth and throat cancer, infertility and death. Even with this knowledge, an estimated 45.9 million Americans still smoke.

However, with increased taxes and citywide smoking bans, the number of smokers will hopefully decrease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “every state may have bans on smoking in restaurants, bars and the workplace” by the year 2020. In 2010, there were 26 states with these indoor smoking bans. Although West Lafayette has, the state of Indiana has yet to pass this smoking ban.
