Bigger Warnings Revealed

According to CNN, along with the new graphic designs, it is said that new warning labels will accompany them on cigarette packs. The new warnings will say such things as, "Cigarettes are addictive"; "Tobacco smoke can harm your children"; Cigarettes cause fatal lung disease"; "Cigarettes cause cancer"; "Smoking can kill you"; and many more. Plus, the phone line 1-800-QUIT-NOW will be placed on the back to let people know who they can call to get help and quit. Cigarette companies are saying that the First Amendment is ignored with these new labels. I believe that the information in this article is sufficient for my research paper.
