No Tobacco Please, We’re British

Further to Yobbo’s post about the anniversary of the repeal of prohibition, it seems some people are nostalgic for the good old days. Medical journal Lancet has called for the British Goverment to ban tobacco:

Smoking should be completely banned in the UK, according to a top medical journal.
The Lancet said tens of thousands of lives would be saved by making tobacco an illegal substance and possession of cigarettes a crime.

I fear I’ve been transported into some bizarre parallel dimension. I’m off to perform some physics experiments and try to discover the laws governing this strange world.
