The NSDAP banned smoking in restaurants and public transportation systems, citing public health, and severely regulated the advertising  of smoking and cigarettes. There was also a high tobacco tax, and supplies of cigarettes to Wehrmacht were rationed. Several health organizations in Germany even began claiming that smoking heightened the risk of miscarriages by pregnant women, now a commonly know fact.
