Australian Court endorses cigarette pack logo ban

Author: Mohib

Perhaps one of the strictest laws in the world on cigarette advertising, Australia’s highest court declared on August 15 that tobacco companies in the country will not be able to display their logos on cigarette packs. According to the court’s order, instead of tobacco company emblems, graphic photographs of smoking’s health effects such as cancer-riddled mouths, sickly children and blinded eyeballs would be featured on a plain, olive-colored cigarette packet.

Too harsh of a decision? Let us know of your comments.
