Should Uncle Sam keep your kid from lighting up? Credit: Corbis

By now we all know that smoking is bad for your health. But some believe that the government should do more to prevent children from ever taking a puff.

A recent editorial in USA Today states that cigarettes are more addictive than ever, and that "If the nation slacks off in the campaign against smoking, a whole new generation will get hooked."

Do you agree? Should the government do more to stop kids from smoking? Or are the cigarette warning labels enough?
