    I think this is way over the top. If they want to go this far with tobacco, are they going to put a guy beating his wife on every bottle of whiskey? Or display a heart with a quadruple bypass on every package of hamburger? You can only inform people of the facts, beyond that it is their own decision about how they treat their body. If someone put some of these images up on a billboard, there would be outrage, and if its on every pack of cigarettes even more people will see it, including young children. I don't feel like having to explain diseased lungs to my 2 year-old.
