    This is another way for the government to control how we live our lives.
    The tobacco act is forcing Philip Morris to make an AD to show people how smoking is bad for you! How can you instruct a company to tell people not to buy there product?? This would force them over time to lose profits and maybe bankrupt themselves. Genocide our own company's.

    Oh yeah... I suppose that is true.

    I'm supposed to feel sorry for tobacco companies who intentionally hid information showing how smoking is addictive and detrimental to one's health? Sorry, I can't do that.

    The Minnesota settlement exposed the tobacco industry's long history of deceptive marketing, advertising, and research and ultimately forced the industry to change its business practices.

    I would think common sense could tell anyone that, if they had any to start with.

    I don't care if a reasonable person would have known that smoking is dangerous. When a company intentionally hides negative information from the public, it has no morals, and it deserves to suffer the consequences for such lack of morals. JMO

    every food company does that as much as possible.

    You don't think every company will lie to you, to make themselves a profit?
