Ok, check it. . . NO. When you make a substance illegal, you create an underground market. Organized crime's only major source of income is illicit drug-trade. The more substances that are illegal, the more well-funded they are. That only makes them better at killing our soliders/cops trying to keep them out of our borders. Also, this will eliminate quality control of the tobacco, so it will be even more harmful than it already is. Since it's such a large market, I'm guessing the Government currently makes a massive amount of money off of taxing it. If it were illegal, we'd lose all that money, putting us in an even worse economy. If it were illegal, it'd also be a criminal offence, and our prisons would be that much more crowded with people getting caught. Clearly the intentions are good, but the idea is all wrong. Prohibiton dose not decrease a substance's use at all, and if the substace is still used, regulation is the absolute best option. This applies to all non-weaponized things.
To give up freedom for security is folly. Doing so only leads to tyranny.
If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking... is freedom.

Maybe we should use other currency symbols as phrases too. $ can mean "I was late to the meeting because I was gorging myself on cheeseburgers" and £ could mean "I can't make your birthday party because I'm busy not getting my teeth fixed."
