Lecture 15 - The Tobacco Paradigm

Lecture 15 - The Tobacco Paradigm

This video was recorded at YALE - EVST 255 - Environmental Politics and Law. The lecture explores the development of scientific proof of the harm that tobacco poses to human health and the legal tools used to regulate its use. The government has used warnings, control over advertising, and age restrictions to regulate tobacco. The tobacco industry has been able to complicate efforts to impose stricter regulations on tobacco consumption due to its power in the media due to ad sales and government due to the importance of cigarette sales taxes to state governments.
