Snowdo in New York

“This is almost a prohibitionist crusade now,” said Christopher Snowdo, one of the leading experts on the anti-smoking movement and author of Velvet Glove, Iron Fist: A History of Anti-Smoking.

Like hard-core pornography he said, “We are getting very, very close to it being prohibited without it being illegal.”
