Re: ''Govt raises taxes on alcohol, cigarettes'' (BP, Aug 22).
I welcome this new taxation by the government and hope authorities extend this policy against tobacco products and alcohol.
Nobody can prove that smoking tobacco brings any benefit to human lives and society. A target year for a complete ban on smoking should be set. Until then, prohibitively higher tax hikes should be implemented year by year. Such a measure would gradually destroy business and employment related to tobacco products until a complete ban is in place.
