Should smoking in movies warrant an R rating?
A study shows that watching scenes which portrayed smoking in PG-13 movies led to more teens experimenting with cigarettes. One cancer specialist says, “The movie industry [should] treat smoking like it treats profanity and sex and violence. If saying the ‘F’ word twice gets you an R rating, certainly something as important as smoking should get you an R rating.”
Do you think seeing smoking in movies is more likely to make teens want to smoke?

So long as the rating stays in America, which I presume it would. I see no problem with this. America is such a closed off kind of country, very censored.

This is stupid. If you’re going to see a PG-13 movie, then I’m sure you’ve seen someone smoke a cigarette before.
