May 31 is World No Tobacco Day and the World Health Organization wants smokers to “commit to quit.” Unfortunately, as with so many issues recently, the WHO misunderstands the problem—and its solution is both patronizing and ineffective. Worse, other WHO policies, such as its opposition to less harmful nicotine products, actually make it more difficult for smokers to quit.
