Candy cigarettes are a candy introduced in the early 20th century made out of chalky sugar , bubblegum or chocolate , wrapped in paper as to resemble cigarettes . Some products contain powdered sugar hidden in the wrapper, allowing the user to blow on the cigarette and produce "smoke" on the other end. Candy cigarettes' place on the market has long been controversial because many critics believe the candy desensitizes children, leading them to become smokers later in life.  Because of this, the selling of candy cigarettes has been banned in several countries even though they are continued to be manufactured and consumed in many parts of the world. However, many manufacturers now describe their products as candy sticks , bubble gum , or simply candy . 
12. The smoking ban is built on an illusory health threat. This is perhaps the most important reason of all, because the question of health is used by the government to override all other considerations. In this case, the deadly health threat is ‘secondhand smoke’. But there is no actual proof that even one person has died from this phantom menace. After 40 years of studies, anti-smokers can still only produce computer projections based on dubious statistics, and ‘relative risk ratios’ which sound scary but mean nothing in the real world. That’s why we see, for instance, posters telling us that tobacco smoke contains various nasty-sounding chemicals, without mentioning that these substances are present only at infinitesimal, harmless levels.
