New, more graphic cigarette warnings unveiled - This will backfire on FDA.


Yesterday, the Food and Drug Administration, armed with new powers approved by Congress last year, announced its plans to require cigarette packs and ads to carry bigger, much more prominent and graphic health warnings, including images of dead bodies, cancer patients and diseased lungs.

This will backfire on the FDA or grits aren't groceries. (Photo from The Washington Post.)

Just one more example of a government with nothing useful to do other than bother people.

I fully agree with you, John. These graphic labels can hardly help in preventing people from smoking. Today, the only way to reduce the number of smokers might be constantly pushing up the price of cigarettes which would breed resentment among the smokers.
