This is just part of my series focusing on the good the Nazis did. While there was certainly a lot of bad, hey, they did a lot of good too
It is rumored that Adolf Hitler was so opposed to smoking in his later life that he couldn’t stand someone lighting up in the same room, and often felt obligated to object to it as a waste of money. Thus, he began one of the most expensive and effective tobacco movements throughout history. While during the 1930s and 1940s, other anti-tobacco movements failed fantastically in other countries, it was taken seriously in Nazi Germany.
The Nazis banned smoking in restaurants and public transportation systems, citing public health, and severely regulated the advertising of smoking and cigarettes. There was also a high tobacco tax, and the supplies of cigarettes to the Wehrmacht were rationed. Several health organizations in Nazi Germany even began linking smoking to cancer and claiming that smoking heightened the risks of miscarriages by pregnant women, both now commonly known facts.
The statistics of annual cigarette consumption per capita as of 1940 had Germany at only 749, while Americans smoked over 3,000.
Pretty sick of you to compare the Nazis to Penn State, bro.
It's totally unfair to the Nazis.
Historically you also have to realize that tobacco is an almost exclusively American export especially in the 1930's-40's.
The Nazis were probably getting inferior leaf from South America and Hitler wanted to discourage it's use because of the waste importing it.
Looks like another perfect day.
With regards to tobacco use, I learned the other day that James I of England condemned it's usage in 1604, citing that it was "a custom loathsome to the eye, hatefull to the nose, harmful to the brain, dangerous to the lungs, and in the black stinking fume thereof, nearest resembling the horrible Stigian smoke of the pit that is bottomless."

Not guilty y'all got to feel me
Analogy fail. Appropriate comparison would be a Germany 365 thread.
OP, what school did you receive your education from again?
Excellent thread. I, for one, do not look forward to a year's worth of spam about stuff that nobody outside of a few apologist PSU fans care about.
