Smoking kills, but it makes money for the suppliers.
Taxation increases the amount of money in government coffers.
There is a correlation between increased taxation and increased
levels of government sponsored anti-smoking initiatives.
These often do not work.

Use Chinese laws to mete out death penalty for smuggling of tobacco related stuffs after the imposition of super high taxes since foreign suppliers will not help to stop smuggling activities. Secondly, ban all private plantations and prosecute unauthorised planters with death penalty too.   

Then, evaluate the progress strenuously as though CPC is fighting corruptions!

What's on your mind...
