Iceland has taken the 'smokers are all addicts' mantra to its logical extreme and now proposes to prescribe tobacco to smokers.
I can barely type for laughing. You smokophobes brought this about, and now you will not only be paying for any possible future treatment I might need, you'll be paying for my baccy too! I'm in Scotland so prescriptions are free. Fan bloody tastic. Bring it on! The sooner the better.
As an isolated island, Iceland arguably stands a greater chance of success with such draconian measures than other nations.
With no neighbouring countries and rigid customs controls at ports and airports, it will be difficult for anyone to smuggle in contraband cigarettes.
Why would anyone bother if they can get it on prescription? A master class in not-getting-it, right here.
Oh, and if the NHS decides to stop treating smokers like they do in Sweden, prepare for a no-win-no-fee charge of extortion, guys. We're playing your game by your rules now. No compromise.
