Hip health freaks think smoking is cool again

Now this is just weird, as smoking gets pushed to the margins, this is the last thing I expected, but it makes a change from smokers convinced that marijuana legalization is the key to making cigarettes 'acceptable' again.


Down the road from Navy Beach and overlooking Fort Pond Bay in Montauk is a bungalow that from afar appears to have the trappings of a wellness retreat: Massage tables pepper the lawn, and yoga mats are set up on the patio. But the houseguests staying here aren’t your standard healthy hippies. Clad in Gucci slip-ons and cutoffs, they’re all smoking cigarettes, and the host of the house, Hestia Tobacco founder David Sley, encourages that.

There is also a wonderful paragraph that takes a swipe at the 'natural is harmless' meme further down.


And cigarettes marketed as natural are just as bad for smokers, according to a study published in the journal Tobacco Control in December 2016. “Inhaling burnt tobacco is harmful whether it’s organic, additive-free, or natural, it doesn’t matter,” lead study author Jennifer Pearson told Reuters.
