EU seeks end to attractive tobacco branding; 75% of pack to be a warning
Because Europeans are so damned stupid they don’t know smoking is bad for them? I mean, really. Chock full of drunks in some of those EU countries, anyway. What are they going to do about that? Bigger and bigger government just gives dumb, costly ideas a place to go.
The European Union proposed drastic restrictions on tobacco branding on Wednesday, saying cigarette packs should reflect the deadly threat posed by smoking.
If approved by EU member states and the European Parliament, the law will mean graphic visual and written warnings take up 75 percent of the surface of all cigarette packets, leaving 25 percent or less for the brand.
