Today's poll question; do you think we should be putting pictures of dead people on packs of cigarettes? I am in favour of discouraging young people from smoking, but this seems to be a step too far. The most effective way to discourage people from smoking is to do what they have been doing jacking up taxes on tobacco. A lot of people have stopped smoking because they just can't afford it anymore. Then again, as you make it more expensive you make black market cigarettes more profitable. I don't mind big warning labels on cigarettes, but I draw the line at dead people. I don't want to see dead people like the kid in the Sixth Sense.
What's next? Are we going to mandate that cigarettes be renamed death sticks and that they be sold in tiny coffins?
