Poorly conducted research is a gift to the opponents of tobacco control

Poorly conducted research has never stopped prohibitionists before. Why stop now? Tobacco companies don’t even oppose bad science.

“A recent research paper has suggested that the reason tobacco control policies do not work for everyone could be down to genetics. Blanket policies are unlikely to ever reach everyone, and evidence of their lack of success is often seized upon by those who believe any attempt at tobacco control is ‘nanny state nonsense’.” [The Guardian]
