A U.S. appeals court strikes down a previous court ruling that requires cigarette companies to put graphic warning labels on tobacco products. Because the decision contradicts the ruling in a similar court case, the issue may ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court. Winning the day: MO,RAI,LO.

    Anyone at any time can research or simply google "the health risks of smoking" or something similar. And any smoker who lives in a state like New York is reminded on a daily basis what the status quo/ the prevailing sentiment about smoking is - It's banned practically everywhere! By the time a person goes to a store and buys a pack of cigarettes, he or she has already made up his/her mind about smoking. I think putting graphic warning labels on cig packs would be an oppressive regulation not to mention a waste of money. I respect people who want to smoke and used to smoke myself. I really enjoyed it. I know it's not politically correct, but I support tobacco companies. Long MO, PM.
