For my English GCSE I have to have a debate with another member of my class. We have already been put into pairs and given a topic to debate. I have been given the task to argue against making smoking illegal. In other words, persuade people to believe that smoking is a good thing. I've found a surprisingly large amount of information to back up my argument so the content of my speech is sorted. The only problem now is I need a catchphrase and I'm useless of thinking of catchphrases. Please help!

Yes you could centre on the general premise that although smoking is bad, prohibition never works. You can use the US attempt in the 20's with Alcohol, the organised crime aspect etc etc. You could argue that criminalising it would cause a bigger problem, not to mention the tax revenue that would be lost. You've been asked to debate against making it illegal, no where does it say that keeping it legal in some way says it's good.
