I REALLY Hope People Stop Smoking

Honestly, I do. It’s a dirty, disgusting habit.

But protectionism is protectionism, irrespective of the commodity at issue. If you want to stop smoking, favoring Canadian tobacco over American tobacco via protectionism is no way to do it. And even if you don’t care what happens regarding the cigarette market, think about what might happen regarding other commodities that may fall victim to protectionism.
