Denmark to use pictures on cigarette packs
COPENHAGEN, Denmark, April 24 (UPI) -- The Danish Health Ministry plans to add pictures of the effects of smoking to cigarette packs, including images of smoke-blackened lungs and bodies in morgues.
Health Minister Jakob Axel Neilsen told the Metro Xpress newspaper he expects the photographic warnings to be added as part of a national health plan based on prevention to be put into effect next fall.
The proposal has the backing of the government and the major opposition party, although the Health Ministry has the authority to put it into effect. The Prevention Commission recommended using pictures, based on a Canadian study that showed they are more effective than written warnings.

Good luck with that. Everyone in Denmark over about the age of five is a smoker. I've never seen such intensity of smoking per capita as I did in Copenhagen. :)"Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L.

What about cigarettes loaded with dynomite caps?
After the first drag, they'll never smoke again ... or kiss ... or whistle ... or talk ...

Take some of the blackened lungs dry them, grind them and add them to the cigarettes. List them as an ingredient on the label. Recycling

Ha! I just watched Thank you for Smoking. It is a hilarious movie. It pretty much revolves around this concept. Too funny.Loyalty Binds Me- Motto of Richard III
