Ban on e-ciggerates - Can regular ciggerates and chewable tobacco be next?
Per your inputs, though there is a ban on chewable tobacco, it is ineffective and 86% citizens can still find chewable tobacco products in their city. Below is the link to the survey report. Do review it and share specific inputs that Modi Government 2.0 must take to enforce this ban. We can save a lot of lives which otherwise would yield to some form of cancer by acting in this area.

The Cafe owners/manager are afraid to confront Smokers for many reasons... the least of which is aggression from the Smoker[s] or loss of business.
As with any Law... unless the Police are FORCED to Enforce these laws then what good will they be??? more
In 2010 India had more than 200 million tobacco consumers; only 13% of them consume it in the form of cigarettes, whereas 54% consume it in the form of beedis and the rest in raw/gutka forms. Nowadays the use of cigarettes has increased and the use of beedis decreased.
Those figures mean what? Someone is making a lot of money from the fact that even though Tobacco is a 'controlled substance' it is legal... They also mean that there is a lot of disease in our society.
From the Government and the Indian Tobacco Company - through to the Health Industry Hospitals & Doctors who profit from the side-effects of Tobacco toxicity - a lot of businesses and successive governments have profited immensely from the sale, use and diseases caused by Tobacco.
The only people that suffer are the citizens!
We must rid ourselves of this curse that has been visited upon us from the British East India Company!!! more
