Advertising Policies

Some of the Google policies state that they do not allow for the promotion of certain products.  A good example for me is your tobacco policy. http://prntscr.com/2oaxy2

So from this wording, it sounds as though you will not allow me to promote with Google ads the cigars I sell, but I can advertise the cigar cutters.  Is this correct?  Is it a problem that I sell cigars if I am not asking google to do the promotion of these products through my ad campaigns?  The wording in the policy sounds as though this is the case, but I want to ensure it is true.

Hello;
When Google says that "Google AdWords doesn't allow the promotion of most tobacco or tobacco-related products"  -it means that Your ads or website cannot promote tobacco products.

 

So, even if your ads are only about cigar cutters, and the webpage the  user "lands"  (on the site)  is about cigar cutters, but, on the same site, other  pages promote cigars - then, you cannot advertise the domain.
