Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Tobacco [VIDEO]

“Wow, So it’s an aging product that’s decreasing in popularity, and yet somehow it can’t stop making money. It’s basically the agricultural equivalent of U2.”


“I could get angry now and call tobacco companies ‘*ssholes’ or ‘monsters’ or ‘open sores on Satan’s d*ck,’ but instead, let’s rise above it and instead try to broker peace. Because it’s clear what each side wants. Countries want to warn their citizens about the health dangers of smoking tobacco. Tobacco companies want to present branded images they’ve spent time and money to cultivate. So might I suggest a compromise.”
