    This was actually successful for a time. I don't think anyone but very stupid people bought the tobacco industry's arguments about cancer.


    I'm old enough to remember when many if not most conservatives and libertarians argued that tobacco products don't cause cancer and insisted that the tobacco-cancer link was a fabrication by a liberal conspiracy of some kind.
