I don't like smoking, but I'm not a fan of prohibition.
Keep it legal, tax the hell out of it (and alcohol, and petrol).
Whilst we're at it, legalise most other drugs too - and tax the hell out of them as well. The more personally and societally harmful, the higher the tax.
That way, you get a regulated market, you know the product is what it says it is, there's far, far less stigma attached to using, and seeking help to not use, and more money for government to actually tackle the issues around use.
I know it's not a lefty thing to think, as it makes these things a plaything of the wealthy, but **** it.
