Colbert on snus and placebo

Stephen Colbert did a brilliantly funny piece on his show the other night, tackling the introduction of ‘snus‘ to the USA, tobacco pouches that fit under the lip, and the increasing placebo effect, a topic which we discussed recently.

Colbert tries the snus pouches on the programme, which, I have to say, seem remarkably uninviting, and riffs on the health benefits of sugar pills with plenty of laughs.
