The Hammer chats with Critic Chris Snowdon About Smoking, The Government and Media Statistics
Smoking - Why the Demonisation of Smokers? (Part 1)
Nailing It! with Ross "The Hammer" Hemsworth
In the UK in recent years, smokers have been banned from smoking in public places, and pay enormous amounts of tax on their purchases. Now they are facing display bans in shops and plain white packaging on the products. In this show, the Hammer talks to critic Chris Snowdon who argues that the government and media statistics are wrong.
Meanwhile ASH, an organisation campaigning for people to stop smoking, argue that health issues alone should be enough to force people to quite smoking.
Should people have the right to weigh up the health issues and make a free-will decision on whether or not to smoke, or is this another case of the `nanny-state` telling us all what to do?
So watch out folks - you`re about to be hit by The Hammer!!
