Why there isn't any tobacco commercials.

The reason Behind on why there isn't any of them is because of the effect that it does to adults and children. It makes them get mouth cancer and the loss of teeth. Also you can get lip cancer. Usually the people that use tobacco are the one who get these 85% of the time. So they don't do commercials so they can prevent these things from happening and so people don't get addicted or don't even want to try it because the commercial will be persuading to do tobacco.
