I can't believe this legally manufactured and sold without impunity but marijuana isn't here in Japan. So which one is really the "dangerous drug" ?

@speed - You make it sound like: "We need yet one more drug on the market, there aren't enough" . Are you for real dude?

I don't think they are comparable. The concern with tobacco is about physical health. The concern with marijuana is that it gets you stoned.

Concern?

Anyway, I wonder if these cigarettes will become a great hit with foreign travelers, wanting to show people back home how #$%&ed Canada is.

I hope the ink they're using isn't more toxic than the tobacco.

I'm sure some Canadians will deal with this in creative ways, replacing "cigaretes" with "Trudeau", or making the entire cigarette black...

How is putting a warning label on individual cigarettes going to reduce smoking?

Any evidence for it? Probably none.

Why not just ban them? Exactly.

Well done, Canada. Good to see they care for health and their citizens.

Tobacco companies are so 20th century.

They don't care about the health our their citizens, and neither does your government. The whole system is set up go keep you I'll but under the guise of looking out for your health. People are naive.

Back in my home country Sweden, the government decided some decades ago to lower the rate of smoking by drastically raising the tax on tobacco. The result was the influx of Russian and Yugoslavian mafia peddling cheap Eastern European cigarettes on the black market. We didn't really have any organized crime in Sweden before that. Gang wars with many casualties ensued. Making something illegal more or less automatically invites organized crime to take advantage of the situation.
