The FDA is proposing a new line of frightening (and a little graphic) photos and health warnings for cigarette packages. Everyone can agree the move is provocative, but will it work?
The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act) requires that cigarette packages and advertisements have larger and more visible graphic health warnings. So, the FDA is proposing a series of nine warnings with graphic messages, hinting at the scary consequences of smoking.
If all goes as planned, the new warnings and graphics are set to appear on all cigarette packages by the end of 2011. I wonder what the tobacco companies think about this? Yup, they're probably not thrilled.
What do you think? Effective?
