This industry puts a lot of strain on the already diminishing environment due to its manufacturing cost and the process that clearly affects our environment.

The change towards a better future shall be planned swiftly and carefully because of the amount of people that depend on that industry. Their families are sustaining upon this industry and a shift towards total ban of tobacco might affect millions. The better and logical solution towards a no tobacco world is by creating awareness amongst the people. Another way is to help the farmers that engage in tobacco farming in shifting towards a different yet profitable crop that they can farm.

The amount spent on cigarette advertising and promotion increased from $7.62 billion in 2019 to $7.84 billion in 2020.
