In the what will they do next corner, Fox News moneymaker Tucker Carlson is now promoting smoking. Taking a page from Timothy Leary’s 1960s LSD playbook, Carlson said that nicotine “frees your mind.” The facts differ.
There is no evidence that nicotine, which is highly addictive, “frees your mind” or offers any other benefits. Cigarette smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in the U.S., accounting for over 480,000 deaths per year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Carlson is expected to very shortly be coming out in favor of cancer, the number one side effect of long-term smoking.← Previous The Skatepark In Palestine This short film, Walls Cannot Keep Us From Flying, follows two skateboarders in Palestine.
