Nanny State PING!
There is no one alive today who has not heard that smoking can cause Cancer.
All of these warnings are wasted , because no one pays any attention to them.
Pictures of dead people eaten up with cancer attached to the pack, will not stop the true smoker from smoking.
They simply choose to take their own chance.
What planet does thi judge live on? Because on this planet, everyone knows smoking has "health risks," namely it can and does kill people.
“Judge Jane Branstetter Stranch of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati”.
If people gave up smoking, this b*tch would complain about children’s healthcare being under-funded. (don’t cigarette taxes go for that in Cincinnati? They do in Georgia.)
Maybe she’d be happier with the sale of aborted fetuses’ body parts for extra income to the state...it’s the democrat way of doing things.
‘We return to where we began the lack of consumer awareness of tobaccos serious health risks resulting from the decades-long deception by tobacco companies, Judge Jane Branstetter Stranch of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati wrote in a ruling that was unanimous in some sections and 2-1 in others.’
Yeah, as if there were ANYONE ON PLANET EARTH who hasn’t heard this yet.
I fear for our Republic. It is nearly extinct.
Their "reasoning" must go something like this:
"We've had the current generation of [text] warnings on cigarettes for decades now. Smoking is down, yet lots of people still make the choice we think is wrong, and WE'RE the government! The only possible explanation is that the facts haven't been presented to these people. The idea that someone could be fully informed and evaluate the risks differently or assign different values to the outcomes than we do is simply inconceivable!"
