The toxins in contraband tobacco, discussion on Talksport

In case you want feel like listening to chat about toxins in tobacco, presenter Ian Collins on Talksport (until 1 am) considers the news that contraband tobacco seized recently contains 30 times the toxic residues of legitimate cigarettes. Other subjects covered too. Background story from the BBC here.

The anti-tobacco brigade struggles to accept that it contributes to the problem every time it pushes the government to raise duty. Also, every time it tries to denormalise smoking , it pushes the legal product further into the shadows with no concern for smokers' health.
