Deleted Cases

In 2011 the FDA passed rules requiring that cigarette packs include a rotating array of highly graphic anti-smoking warnings that would cover at least 50% of the surface area, front and back. The next year, the U.S. District Court for D.C. struck down the rule, and the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld that decision. The court was unimpressed by what it saw as inconsistent research findings incapable of demonstrating that the more graphic warnings would actually lead to fewer people taking up smoking or more smokers quitting the habit.  One of those graphics is provided in the textbook, and here are a few more of them.
