    Interesting idea from the FDA

    Cigarettes will carry grisly new warning labels - Yahoo! News

    sounds like a good idea to help prevent younger people from smoking but no idea if it would affect older americans that have smoked for years

    Honestly, I don't think pictures like that will prevent younger kids from smoking.

    Kids do it because they're not allowed to, it makes them feel older, and most kids at that age have a "it can't happen to me" kind of attitude.

    Agreed. The fact that cigarette taxes are a cash cow for the federal government also sends a mixed message. Yeah, these things kill you.......but man is it great for cash flow!

    Anything that could cause anyone to not smoke is a good idea IMO.
