Smokers of "Light" Cigarettes to sue!
so, in the paper this morning, i read that a judge ruled that people who smoke Light Cigarettes are now eligable to sue tobbacco companies for "false" advertising or whatever. first off, the box doesn't say anything about them being safer.. there's s till a damn cancer warning. it has something to do with "false marketing" during the 70's when lights where introduced.
my rant is, that how can this be allowed? how can people sue tobbacco companies for something they did, especially once warnings were in place? i mean, if people can sue tobacco companies for something they chose to do to themselves... why can't the families of drunk driving victims sue alcohol companies?
and don't tell me it's not the same... it's not only the same, but worse!!! all those teens who die because they either didn't know better (same argument as cigarettes), or whatever. the point is... if you choose to do something, you f'ing deal with the consequences. you can't go back and blame the provider for something you've been doing for 30 damn years!!!!
