=THE SMOKING ROOM WITH JACOB GRIER=
WEBINAR | The Smoking Room with Jacob Grier
Date: Thursday 13th May 2021
Time: 6.00-7.00pm (UK)
Jacob Grier doesn’t like cigarettes. He doesn’t smoke cigarettes. He advises people against smoking cigarettes. And yet he believes that adults should be allowed to smoke cigarettes without being harassed, demonised, over-taxed and thrown out of every building in America, including, in some cases, their own home. This view, which was once so uncontroversial as to go without saying, makes him virtually a libertarian provocateur today.
