I'm convinced the "anti-smoking" movement is designed to get more people to smoke. Hitler was the first anti-smoking Nazi...literally. He had the power of propaganda and autocratic rule, and we know how he didn't like people going against him.
That said, statistics show that the rate of smoking in Germany INCREASED prior to World War II more than in France (where we know their whole society is about smoking). Smoking in Germany decreased as the war went on only because of the privations of war.
I think our government knows this, and is trying to increase smoking so there'll be more money into government coffers, plus with the early smoking deaths, billions of dollars will be saved on Social Security and Medicare.

It was never about smoking, the anti-smoking movement is about
1) Control/more socialism
2) Providing employment for the unemployable
