In my opinion, smoking is an important social issue. I think so because smoking is the source of unhappiness for people who smokes and doesn't smoke. For example, cigarettes are expensive because of cigarette tax, also secondhand smoke have toxic substance more than mainstream smoke. One solution is to raise the price of cigarettes more. Then number of smokers get fewer. Another solution is to develop new cigarettes what have little toxic substance. I think Japanese excellent scientists can do that. It is necessary for that reform of sence.
