Federal Government plans for LARGER, Graphic Warning Labels

Corpses, cancer patients and diseased lungs: These are some of the images the federal government plans for larger, graphic warning labels that will take up half of each cigarette package.
The images are part of a new campaign announced by the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Health and Human Services on Wednesday to reduce tobacco use, which is responsible for about 443,000 deaths per year. "It acts as a very public billboard because you all of the sudden are reading something about lung cancer from that pack behind the cash register, whereas before you were just reading 'Marlboro,' 

Whats next, Alcohol?  with pictures of livers that are ate up from abuse. How about candy or Mountain Dew with a picture of some rotting teeth. I know my thoughts on this and could argue both sides if needed.

What do you guys think about this, I am very curious to see what you have to say!
