Judge orders all US tabacco companies to make public service announcements ,where they must admit to lies perpetuated on the American public,about the true dangers of cigarette smoking.

The lies dating back to 1964 ,must be rectified.

The announcements can run for up to two years. The companies may appeal .

So now,it took 60 years to admit this danger...so maybe in 2073 ,the pharmaceutical companies will be doing the same.
We can hope ....

Yep. It  destroys lives.

I don't understand it at all really, but I've entered into my cycles with chewing tobacco for a while. It's not a whole tract of joy let me tell you, should have never tried it

It's no longer a practice, but back in the 50's and 60's young men entering the military were given free cigarettes.  Does that make the government complicit?  Don't know.  But it certainly generated huge numbers of new customers for the tobacco companies.

But it's a good ruling by the judge, and will hopefully be upheld on appeal.

Does anyone these days really need PSA's to realize the dangers of tobacco and has anyone in the last 40 years really bought into whatever lies they are telling? Besides, I thought that's what the surgeon generals label warnings were for. Goodness. Anyway, I am a smoker and I quit giving most of my money to Phillip Morris almost 2 years ago. I roll my own smokes now. A bag of tobacco and a couple cartons of cigarette tubes is only about $20 or around $0.70 a pack on average. The only time I buy Marlboros is when I really have no other choice and that's 10 packs or less a year. They taste like crap and are filled with chemicals whereas the stuff I buy is all natural. Yes I know it not healthy by any means and yes I know what a terrible habit smoking is. It's a love/hate relationship as I believe it is with many smokers. I have often said that there is no more addicting and dangerous drug in the world than tobacco. I know there are hard street drugs but the number people tobacco has a hold on compared to the number of junkies is, well I don't know but I'm sure there is no comparison which one has a greater effect on society.

psshht. "aerocraft" indeed! Nothing will replace the steam engine in power and efficiency, madam. The power of steam will carry us across the oceans in luxury. Why, just look at that new Titanic ship. Sure to be top of the libe, no doubt.

You sir are the rum cad that only seeks to befoul the air and spoil the coast line.
Sail sir, sail is the cornerstone of a civilised society. And if you need to get about within a country, well there are canals for that.

Your "sailing boats" are nothing but rubbish, sir! Your canals have befouled my beautiful lands! I used to see naught but crops and mollies! Now it's just your disgusting filth filled channels!
I challenge your best "sailing boat" to my steam vessel! Then, and only then, shall we see whom the better man is!
