Americans will not smoke cigarettes with frightening pictures on packs
Washington Court of Appeal has taken decision that USA authorities don't have right to demand from tobacco Companies placing on cigarette packs pictures that clearly demonstrate smoking harm.
Judge Janice Roger Brown is sure that USA government exceeds authority influencing in such a way smokers. She has underlined that there are no guarantees that pictures of tumors, stumps and other problems caused by nicotine consumption will help reducing number of American smokers.
"These unscrupulous attempts to wake up emotions, and possibly, shame and frighten off cigarettes consumers from smoking", - Judge Janice Roger Brown declared.
Result of court session became decision that authorities of USA exceed their authority, trying to make smokers refuse their vicious habit.
Let's remind that USA government in the nearest future planned to introduce law that requires from tobacco companies obligatory placing on packs of their products "frightening" pictures - consequences of nicotine consumption. However, tobacco manufacturers have filed counterclaim, arguing that such a law infringes freedom of speech.
However, in entire world authorities continue restricting tobacco lobby. For example, in Australia in December comes into force law about cigarettes sale in identical packs without indicating brand of manufacturer but with frightening pictures of smoking consequences.
Such restrictions intend to introduce authorities of Canada, Norway, Great Britain, India and New Zealand.
