Anti-Smoking poster from 1915

There's something charmingly blunt about this anti-smoking poster from 1915. It also contains a number of strangely prescient cues for tobacco policy (and some elements of illegal drug policy) over the following century.

I doubt today's smokers have the attention span to take any notice.

Awesome. I love to stick that s*** in smokers faces, then wait for them to get all offended. Then when they're all offended I ask them why the take that line against people who smoke cannabis if they're so offended when I do it to them over their tobacco use.

Drugs policy and attitudes are so hypocritical it's beyond belief.
