Far Right Snus

ApocalypseCometh (an outstanding doom/misery culture blog of interest) asks, "Could tobacco be good for you?" (which I guess is the default Far Right position on tobacco.)

Tobacco is not a vitamin, it is a vice, and while this blog supports the use of snus because snus is paleo, the comment section offers the role of contemporary conspiracy thinking applied to tobacco use, where Keoni Galt points out that it's the fertilizer used in growing industrial tobacco for cigarettes that is the source of cancer,  a sort of mid point, a point of political consensus, that suggests smoking tobacco is bad, but something that could be remedied.
