ASH worked with Sick of Smoking ( on this video to highlight a Dutch criminal complaint against the tobacco industry for murder, attempted murder, manslaughter, attempted manslaughter, inflicting and attempting severe physical harm and deliberately harming health. Tobacco is the only legal consumer product that kills its consumers when used as intended.
