Supreme Court allows lawsuits over 'light' cigarettes ads

Court allows lawsuits over 'light' cigarettes

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court on Monday handed a surprising defeat to tobacco companies counting on it to put an end to lawsuits alleging deceptive marketing of "light" cigarettes.

In a 5-4 split won by the court's liberals, it ruled that smokers may use state consumer protection laws to sue cigarette makers for the way they promote "light" and "low tar" brands.

I'm sorry but anyone that thinks they are safe because they smoke lights should not be allowed to breed.
