In Australia, smokers didn't and don't give a crap about the plain packs. It's extreme increases in taxation that meant low income people couldn't afford cigarettes that reduced our smoking rate.

Vaping is a big reason that smoking is at an all-time low! Vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking!

Is it just me or did he make more mistakes in his speech and speech patterns than any other segment that he's done? Love his show, so I watch all his segments and it was weird to see/hear him make that many.

Very left leaning
In what sense was it "very left leaning"? Besides a few comments here and there, overall it was not politically colored. I am not a leftist but I didn't consider it being "very left".

My aunt died from lung cancer due to second-hand smoke. And to this day, everytime I see someone smoke cigarettes I get disgusted and think of my uncle (I blame him for "killing" her)

Smoking is beneficial to non-smokers. The smokers die younger thus saving pension costs. Thanks, smokers!

Smoking - and breathing in other people's smoke - makes asthma worse over the long term by causing permanent damage to the lungs. It can also trigger asthma symptoms or even an asthma attack in the short term - 82 per cent of people with asthma tell us that tobacco smoke affects their asthma.Cigarette smoke - Asthma UK | Homepagewww.asthma.org.uk/advice/triggers/smoking/

When I dropped someone off at the local airport I saw people smoking in the enclosed entry ways of that airport. I didn't know people could do that. Of course last time I was there I didn't see any non smoking signs.

Thank God India doesn't have huge influence of international cigarette companies. Our main tabacco company ITC has diversified to other business that only 20-25% of their profit come from cigarette sales.

Cigarettes should be illegal. Most dangerous drug in the country.
Somewhere, at some point in time, a Malboro employee (or even the CEO) Saw this clip and screamed his fucking heart out when he heard about Jeff and Jeff's publicity. I have no doubt that happened and I'm loving it

Dear Mr. Oliver: Thank You for a very entertaining attempt to getting attention to all the hypocrisy with money and tobacco companies. I really believe You deserve a star for involving all age groups and clearly enlightening anybody that tobacco companies will push their bottom line profit (and, not unlike gas vehicle fuel companies are currently "doing" too) and not exploring opinions in a civilized person form whether their product is "desired", and providing thank you for an option given to invest in Your programming to say that: "they care" (i.e. "Jeff the damaged lung"), and how seemingly they are only fudging the whole big tobacco picture damage to society. That smoke emissions are something living creatures should have a choice about having to tolerate. Nice job, well done, Mr. John Oliver. Any comment in the future will be shorter than this one. :)

Cigarettes are a form of self harm you know. Some people don’t care that it will kill them. That should definitely be a reason for making it illegal.

Since tobacco is legal and people justify it by claiming it's a personal choice, then why can't all drugs be a personal choice? Because being a good influence to your children isn't a choice, it's your responsibility, fuckwits. Make tobacco illegal.

So, before, I used to be of the opinion "yea, tobacco companies are somewhat snakey and their products obviously dangerous but free adults can make their own choices" But then I worked at a grocery store where it was my job to order Tobacco. And my god. Over many years, many different reps, different companies; they are slimey as hell, they know damn well their product is deadly and still want to push it... you should see the advertisements they send to vendors, which I'm legally not allowed to show to customers, the persuasive language compared to other vendor-destined products, just, wow. And if you accidentally miss an order window by 5 minutes you can bet you're getting a strongly worded call. I think they hire reps based on their experience in used car dealerships or large corporation lawyers...... I've never been a smoker but tried it once or twice and now I cannot in good conscious give them money even if it's 90% tax.... Here there are heavy laws concerning advertising the sale of tobacco, there's quite a few cheaper shops who had to, say, black out half the letters in their street signs that say they sell cigars, etc. BUT, a few years ago it became law that every single shop that sold tobacco had to display very prominently a sign from the government that says something about tobacco being bad (since they are quite big, they are the more milder ones) and the note that it's illegal to sell tobacco to minors. Real Result: Every single shop in this province that sells tobacco, must, by law, advertise the fact that they sell tobacco. And the government has to foot the bill for those ads. I can't believe that BIg Tobacco had no hand in that. And our downtown got "cheap, easy to maintain ashtrays" attached to all the light standards "to keep our city beautiful" (they were trashed in less than a year and never really maintained, but that's besides the point). And the kicker, It only cost the city $1! Everybody happy! They were $1 because they were heavily sponsored by Phillip Morris. Why. Why oh why. With ads about "how to quit". If you were trying to Quit, but every single block you walked you saw at least 3 reminders of cigarettes.... how long will you keep them off your mind? And TIL "Imperial Tobacco", with it's 'homegrown, Canadian' branding; is identical to British American Tobacco Inc, evidenced by the logo. Like to see good old JTI. Japan Tobacco is still a corporation which is, at least tightly invested in by the government, which obviously sets up quite a lot of conflict of interest when Japan wants to pass tobacco laws. They do produce absolutely graphically beautiful ads in Japan though, presented as "good manners" (Smoking Manners for Adults), in littering and smoking etiquette, but are really quite unabashedly a way to keep smoking in common culture ("smoking is not just for boors!")

I wish America would just band tobacco in the US I don't care for the tax revenue money that comes from it find another thing to text. This product needs to be illegal it's killing people. Legalize weed in all 50 states that way the smokers can smoke weed instead of tobacco and the state and federal government could get its tax money that way make sure that the marijuana is completely owned by the governments of all the proceeds for selling weed go to the state and federal governments

I would say that both arguments on the topic of tobacco, for or against, is short of the facts. People forget that before all a socioeconomic politics and health scares, there was a reason our ancestors found these herbs beneficial to cultivate and smoke. If you really break it down in a biochemistry viewpoint the herb is loaded with magnesium, sulfur and citric acid. Completing a chain of elements that when ingested together promote the Adenosine Triphosophate (ATP) chains of the citric acid cycle promoting an accelerated metabolism. Meaning higher energy, more abundant production of genetic material called Adinine and i would even say increased focus and intelligence due to a higher voltage in the brain. There is a reason it is this particular elemental composition that is what our bodies need. Think about what the primordial ooze was composed of, that started all life on our planet. It is extremely hard to get large doses of sulfur and magnesium in your diet food-wise. It makes me wonder if tobacco was originally indigenous to volcanic habitats only and spread across the world as a trade good. Our planet was far more volcanically active in the past, meaning abundance of these elements are on a downward trend. I would not be surprised if we begin seeing diseases based on a deficiency. Remember the slower your metabolism gets, the less electrically active your brain can be. Logic dictates that there is a lower limit where function is impaired, and a critical limit where more serious side effects would occur. Sounds alot like Alzheimer's disease right? Even second hand smoke is shown to have an abundance of these elements. A alzheimer's disease study group in a volcanically active habitat would clear that right up using nature, if this is indeed the cause. Alternatively one can simply give them a supplement of proper proportions. This requires extensive knowledge of biochemistry, the citric acid cycle and ATP especially. =) For the citric acid for example one has to use a preservative to prevent ketoacidosis for a strong dose of vitamin c. I should note that this food preservative compound makes metabolisms faster then can occur naturally. A high metabolism is a very good thing genetically. Your flooded with genetic material all the time with a fast turn over which means less chance your cells will receive erroneous code and say, grow some cancer. You are also effortlessly physically fit, burning fat into energy instantly. Did you know that magnesium is the only naturally occuring anti-mutagen? Honestly, i was shocked that the tobacco companies didn't use that in their defense. ='p They obviously don't have a geneticist.

Never got why people smoke cigarettes. They taste awful and it just makes me light headed. I’ll stick to weed. I once tried weed and tobacco together in my bong and it was fantastic with the tobacco rush and weed high, but it tasted gross so I haven’t done one in years now.

I'm from Australian and i remember when they first implemented the plain packaging laws. It was actually very affective as , within the town i grew up in, more people were wanting to quit smoking due to there being more anti smoking products and advertisements that were against cigarettes. This ranged from catchy slogans such as (nicorette, nicorette you can beat the cigarette) to parents having a discussion with kids about how dangerous they are. My family told me (after having serveral unsuccessful attempts to quit)that 'having a cigarette is like lighting a stick of dynamite in your mouth. It's not a question of if it will kill you, it's more when'

I'd be curious to see how more luxury tobacco companies like cigar or pipe tobacco manufacturers and vendors have behaved and how they have been effected by these various laws. I know my local tobacconist has mentioned some specific legislation targeting that portion of the industry in the past.

How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
