US cigarette makers sue over graphic warning label
Five tobacco companies have sued the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over a new law that would force them to place graphic health warnings on their cigarette packets.
The firms argue the plan violates their constitutional right to free speech, as it requires firms to promote the government's anti-smoking message.
The FDA has not commented on the lawsuit.
The new warnings will be required on cigarette packs from September 2012.
The five companies say the new labels would illegally force them to make consumers "depressed, discouraged and afraid" to buy their products.
How unfair, its alright to kill people but don't depress them, come on Big Tobacco get real.
