Isn't the entire point of raising awareness on the effects of tobacco to hopefully stifle consumption? Snake oil salesmen suing the government. What a time to be alive.

Here in Germany all cigarette packages have horrible pictures on them, even worse than the diseased lung. Because I'm not a smoker, I am not sure how long this has been the case, but it is definitely good that they must do it. I know that since I moved here 18 years ago, smoking has become less and less tolerated. I know some smokes are angry about those horrible pictures on the packages, but this is the right way to deal with this nasty and deathly habit. Maybe in a generation or two it will be phased out all together.

I just found out at an appointment in January to check if I had pneumonia that, because I was exposed to second-hand smoke from my mother's habit for nearly 20 year ( often trapped in the car with her in the winter) I am permanently susceptible to bronchitis and pneumonia.

Why don’t these countries just outlaw tobacco entirely? Just like heroin or cocaine.

Hey +LastWeekTonight why don't you make a video about doctor's mistakes. Around 700,000 people are killed by medical mistakes, wrong diagnosis, wrong treatments, every year. Yes, 700,000 people EVERY YEAR. And that's just the United States. Not counting any other country. Terrorists aren't even close to doctors. Serial killers would be happy to kill as many people as an ordinary doctor does in his career. The worst part is that most of those mistakes are preventable. But medicine just don't care about the casualties. All they want is money.
Can people quit demonizing smoking dear God someone likes to smoke better make them quit let's make beer illegal again now too

My friend grandfather is a fairly heavy smoker 102 years old living in eastern Europe. He does about two cigarette in each awaken hour. Grows his own tobacco leaves since the 50's. He does also health check-ups every year and no issues. Is it cigarette that is unhealthy or the cigarette produced by certain companies? Per capita cigarette consumption dropped huge since the 70's, but cancer rate kept growing with no effects in the statistics.

I remember once I learned smoking was bad back in Kindergarten, I always hid my grandmother's cigarettes so they wouldn't hurt her. Ten years later when shes moving out of her house we found a full carton of them behind her TV and when they asked me about it (15 years old at the time) I said "Yeah that was probably me."

Alcohol is a past time acivity that can turn to adiction. Smoking is a adiction that is portrait as a past time activity.
scasny (1 month ago)
I think they are going on it the wrong side. Treat cigaretes as a medical drug so all ingredient must be known and real warning labels inside. Tabacco is not that horible but the industrie is. The proces of chemical taste softening and the amount of garbage. Most people that smoke was in suprise that 30% of the tabbaco is just brown flavored paper 10-15% recycled tabacco from previou bach and low quality. 5-10% is tabbaco waste like leaf vains and stems from cigar manufacturing.

scasny (1 month ago)
+MovieNerd_EP its not odd to have diferente marketing in other contries. Also it is posible that america have more strict laws. Im from slovakia and tv comertials containing tabbaco is verboten. Also comercials containing hard liqor are rare mostly some cheap bubly vine and beer. We have many beer comercials but very few good beers. Im more whisky and vine also i smoke pipe time to time.

It's 2018, and there's still is no conclusive evidence connecting tobacco and 24 million + people that died since the posting of this video.
scasny (1 month ago)
well we know that most ingredients causte cancer 100% of the time. But all depent of the dosage. Lower the dose lower the chance. Best part is tabacco companies never said how to use ther product on paper at least. And conclusive evidence means human trial witch is not hard to do just find some smokers and test them. But due to its unethical nature its banned for testing. But the reasoning is one smoke dont cause lung cancer so does sniffing petrol fumes. But you dont sniff petrol intentialy and is not adictive.

Derick Chafton (1 month ago)
+scasny if I hand you a rock and tell you to eat it for good luck, will you blame me when it wreaks havoc on your digestion; and create laws, appoint officials, and steal money from the people to mitigate any future worry/fear that will arise from the mere thought of the possibility of being met with a similar incidence? All of this aside from the fact that you would only be creating even more problems. Complete and utter madness. So sorry you can't yet escape that cage they put you in when you were 3. Hahaha you'll find a way out eventually.

+Derick Chafton in that case if someone make something that will hurt human body and dont mention the ill effects. Its the fault of the buyer he dont research long term effeckts. Meaning no standarts and no FDA.
Derick Chafton (1 month ago)
+scasny it's actually quite simple; you have the freedom to buy or the freedom not to buy and they have the freedom to sell or not sell. It's your responsibility to educate yourself on whatever product you are buying. Freedom requires responsibility. Just because you want to be lazy and entitled; don't go dragging in some bureaucratic twat to come between my freedoms and tax my dollars more and drive up inflation.

40% of nation smokes, yet no one TV is allowed to smoke. 3% of the nation is gay, yet endless gays on TV. As for health, uhmmm, oddly more people die from being fat, than smoking. Texting kills more Americans every day than smoking... Where is the ten dollar tax on texting? In closing bugger off. That is English for fuck off.
scasny (1 month ago)
also no one is allowed to drink alcohol. 2015 only 15% adults and that same is with teens. So like not more that 17% . Not sure about gay tv. Well america have problem with obesity more that 40% have it and more that 90% own a car. So dont know what is your point.

Would be funny, mocking a multinational, if it wasn’t an American international and the suing companies didn’t include the Ukaraine. Why would a little neo.fascistic entity like the Ukaraine be involved in a lawsuit like Philip Morris’s if they don’t even sell to Australia? Sorry for the weighty comment. I’m just testing whether this show is followed by anyone who thinks things out, and doesn’t just watch for the silly and self-righteous giggles. Or as you might put it: LOL

Smoking causes bladder cancer which most people don't realize. That last cig before going to bed gets into your bloodstream after being absorbed by the lungs, the carcinogens get filtered out by your kidney and sit in your bladder all night wreaking havoc until you piss it out in the morning. All fun and games until you start pissing blood and then you have bladder cancer.

8:22 It's possible because international courts are a bad idea. There are lots of good things about the world coming together for a better future, but nations need to retain their sovereignty. No other country should be able to tell Australia that they have to allow the advertising of cigarettes—and Australia shouldn't tell any other country not to allow the sale of cigarettes. Personally, I think we should ban smoking in public places and indoors where children are present. Then we should tax cigarettes at a rate such that their price covers their costs, which would amount to a tax of $10 per pack, earmarked to pay for those costs. Allowing people to buy cigarettes without paying for the health care costs means that the rest of us are effectively subsidizing smoking, which is unjust. However, once we've made sure smokers are not harming others and are paying for the consequences, they should be free to smoke. In a free society, adults get to make their own choices, even if we don't like them.

I only smoked for about a month and quit because the taste was horrible. My ex-best friend has been smoking for a little more than a year and stubbornly refuses to believe that smoking has any adverse health effects. "It's always caused by something else" she told me one time. She's been smoking since she was 17, and not only that, but she's obese. She also smokes half a pack a day, although this could have risen since I haven't talked to her in a couple weeks. I tried to help, but I'm done. If she wants to test it , go ahead. But sooner or later she's going to figure out that she's not invincible just because she's young. I also grew up with a father who quit smoking when he adopted me, and he had been smoking for some 40 or so years. But after he stopped, he ended up having a collapsed lung and actually had half of his lung surgically removed. He also has severe heart disease. He has emphysema and COPD and is recommended by his doctors to be on oxygen 24/7. This is what smoking can do to you. He started smoking when he was 12 because he lived on a farm that grew tobacco. I grew up seeing my father attached to oxygen concentrators and knowing that smoking caused it. And now I have to watch my ex-best friend smoke, someone I had known and loved for 12 years, and there's nothing I can do to stop it. My ex-best friend lived with me and my dad for a couple months, saw how much agony my dad was in, and still says that smoking has no adverse health effects.
