No really... there is apparently some US lobbyist ad on Youtube aimed at plain packaging laws for cigarettes, addressing the experience in Australia.
Aside from featuring a reportedly preposterous fake accent (a great guide to the authenticity of the information in the ad), it claims smoking increased after the introduction of the laws and therefore said laws don't work*.
Aren't you glad the Tobacco industry is fighting these laws that let them sell more cigarettes...
and that they cheerfully spend so much money on lobbyists to actually reduce their own profits?
I personally would ask a few relatives of mine who did smoke to write here about the benefits of sticking a collection of damaging substances in your mouth and setting it on fire...
Except they're all dead.
Sorry about that.
*after a while... you do get tired of hearing greedy twerps and lunatic wankers telling you your laws don't work when it's fucking obvious - especially when you actually live here - that they DO work, and even Australians wouldn't keep laws if they had reverse outcomes
