"In a hearing that lasted two hours, a federal judge closely questioned a government lawyer on whether the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) can force tobacco companies to post graphic images on their cigarette packages showing the health effects of smoking".

U.S. District Judge Richard Leon sought answers on whether the FDA’s nine graphic images convey just the facts about the health risks of smoking or go beyond that into advocacy, a critical distinction in the case, said an Associated Press report.

The Anti-Tobacco groups are charitable nonprofits who cross the line every day lobbying for more stringent smoking bans. We are glad that a Judge is beginning to ask the right questions.
