Court Dismisses Law Requiring Graphic Images On Cigarettes

Filed under: Legal MattersHealthSmoking

An appeals court just dismissed a ruling that another appeals court upheld earlier this year.

The Supreme Court might have to step in and make a final decision in this fight against cigarettes.

The law says that cigarette companies would have to use graphic imagery in their health warnings about the dangers of cigarettes.

A judge in the appeals court said:

"This case raises novel questions about the scope of the government's authority to force the manufacturer of a product to go beyond making purely factual and accurate commercial disclosures and undermine its own economic interest — in this case, by making 'every single pack of cigarettes in the country a mini billboard' for the government's anti-smoking message."

Because smoking is more and more prevalent among the nation's youth, the FDA has recommend that graphic images of rotting teeth and tar filled lungs might help dissuade teens from smoking.

We think anything that stops tobacco companies from advertising is great.

We need to protect our youth because they're our future!

Hipsters deserve to die poster

This advertising campaign should get the attention of just about anyone who comes into contact with it.

Mysterious posters popping up in major cities around the United States declare that hipsters, cat lovers, the genetically privileged and crazy old aunts "deserve to die."

Some are confused by the unusual posters, while others are downright offended. In reference to the "cat lovers" poster, one Chicago woman was quoted as saying, "I think that's very offensive to people who are animal lovers."

We imagine that's the point though. One quick look at the campaign's website URL reveals that NoOneDeservesToDie(.org)! While some are up in arms over the "offensive" nature of the campaign, they may not realize that its goal is to raise awareness for a deadly disease that "doesn't discriminate."

For the few that haven't figured it out yet, it means that regardless of the various labels society slaps on our back, NONE of us deserve to die! The site reads:
