ABSTRACT
The article examines several issues arising from the prohibition of advertisements that promote smoking and gambling. Based on utilitarian perspective, the government may prohibit conduct only to produce beneficial consequences sufficient to overcome the resulting loss of liberty. Utilitarianism favors legalization of a ban depending on its consequences. Through utilitarian reasoning, the author argues that there is no moral discrepancy in allowing smoking and gambling while prohibiting advertisements promoting such acts.
