Smoking gets bad

USA had created a law forcing the tobacco companies to put on their packages the diseases you can get like cancer, nasty lungs, and other health problems. Meanwhile, Australia did the same thing, and in addition, banning the brand logos. Why did the australian law stand, in contradiction to the american one? In the United States, they have a law that companies have their rights of speech, "making it harder to restrict what they say in packaging or ads", says the New York Times Upfront. Australia's new rule may reduce a grand rate of smoking.

"This is a victory for all those families who have lost someone to a tobacco-related illness", said the health minister.
