I opened up a pack of cigarettes and noticed it said along the band:
** “Nothing about this cigarette, packaging, or color should be interpreted to mean safer.”**:smack: Duh!
Seriously, “Safer”? I didn’t know they were safe to begin with…
Put it like this in order to be Richer one must be Rich.
Sounds more like a smart-alec comeback to me.
If the tobacco industry really felt that the color wasn’t what was making people buy them then they wouldn’t have had a problem getting rid of the flashy packaging. But they know thats not the case, because if the packaging isn’t colored they won’t look appealing to the children and to people who buy them. So they put this instead, assuring the devoted smoker that it doesn’t mean safer. Thats the way to go on the war on cancer and heart disease!! Smell that BS?!
They are mearly using the “Safe” strip to subside away from the fact that the colors are flashy and might reduce tobacco sales if removed ultimately saving one life for every $10,000 they won’t get. It isn’t that it may make people think that the cigarette is safer because of the color, everyone knows their BS for your health, its the fact that the color is a marketing strategy, right down to the little bright orange speckled tip that distinguishes them from anything else you know. The only thing safe about lights even is the strength of the tobacco (No tobacco is safe, we know that), and the fact that they are usually lighter colored with typically an all white cigarette.
The tobacco industry lobbiest must’ve fought long and hard to get this on the package considering what they were proposing to have put…
What do you think they should do (If anything) about stopping smoking? Or perhaps what it should say, I mean seriously someones gotta come up with something a little more convincing than that, at least if you try… :dubious:
