Lies

There are enough perfectly good arguments against smoking without have to lie to people about them. It looks to me as though for A Non Smoking Generation, as with so many do-gooder zealots, the issue has nothing to do with health and everything to do with imposing their moral hysteria on everybody else.

The Swedish organization A Non Smoking Generation covered Stockholm in posters claiming that smoking stunts penis growth and that cigarette filters are filled with mouse excrements, along with other lies aimed at getting kids to stop smoking.

With someone please think of the children? Lies are no example to set and young people have bs-detectors more than capable of seeing through a smokescreen of nonsense.
