When I've read this I was really surprised. What are they going to do? Cenzor the movies such as 101 Dalmatians, Peter Pan or Mickey Mouse, just because a character smoke? It's ridicoulous!!!! This isn't the proper way to avoid kids from smoking. More you cenzor, more you ban, more the kids will see it as something interesting. Just how many young people I saw smoking when I was in the USA. Just how many youngsters smoke in Italy.
I don't think that if the kids see the evil character of 101 Dalmatians smoking, they see it as a role model and they will start smoking. C'mon it's ridiculous!!! The kids smoke, because they think they are more important by doing it. They smoke, because they think they are like adults. Certainly not because they see the indians in Peter Pan.
