The Moral Maze, gambling and The Rediscovery of Tobacco

I
was
on


The
Moral
Maze

last
night
talking
about
gambling.
It
wasn’t
a
bad
discussion.
I
was
on
at
round
24
minutes
in.

I’ve
also
written
a
review
of
Jacob
Grier’s
book

The
Rediscovery
of
Tobacco

for


Spiked
.

Jacob
Grier
doesn’t
like
cigarettes.
He
doesn’t
smoke
cigarettes.
He
advises
people
against
smoking
cigarettes.
And
yet
he
believes
that
adults
should
be
allowed
to
smoke
cigarettes
without
being
harassed,
demonised,
over-taxed
and
thrown
out
of
every
building
in
America,
including,
in
some
cases,
their
own
home.
This
view,
which
was
once
so
uncontroversial
as
to
go
without
saying,
makes
him
virtually
a
libertarian
provocateur
today.
In

The
Rediscovery
of
Tobacco
,
Grier
explains
how
this
cultural
revolution
happened.

Check
it
out.
And
buy
the
book.
