What I mean't to imply

Shouldn't the government promote healthy lifestyle for Chinese people, and not profit by unhealthy behavior? Why is non smoking not enforced in public areas strictly? especially washrooms and buses when it is proven that smoking and second hand smoke is bad for people and especially children. Shouldn't public health be more important than profit from Tobacco companies? how can there every be reform if there is such a great conflict of interest?  Another point is people don't get comfort from smoking - they just get highly agitated when they stop smoking because it is highly addictive.

They might start doing that, but only after the health care initiative is in full force. If the government has to pay for something out of its pocket, especially something that is preventable.... you will ultimately see effort by government to stop it.

[The previous statement is null and void if corruption is a component.]
