Tobacco companies will be required to report the levels of dangerous chemicals found in cigarettes, chew and other products. Is that fair under the constitution and bill of rights?

Tobacco companies report the levels of dangerous chemicals found in cigarettes, chew and other products is constitutional
Tobacco companies report the levels of dangerous chemicals found in cigarettes, chew and other products is not constitutional
I am happy that Tobacco companies will be required to report the levels of dangerous chemicals found in cigarettes, chew and other products.

    see now i dont like all of this constitutional/unconstitutional talk it should be about people, not a piece of paper.

    i think that people should be able to make their own choices BUT ONLY after given all of the facts.
    i think the same for all products or services.

    That's a good thing, at least people will know what kind of chemicals are in cigarettes, chews and other tobacco products before they buy them. However, the choice is their to make.

    How about this: It's illegal to knowingly poison someone even if you tell them the poison is there. Smoking isn't bad enough without that added toxic chemical incentive, right?

    Me to Big Government: The damn poisons shouldn't be there in the first place! That's like telling a murderer that as long as he tells his victim what he's going to kill him with then it's all cool. If you die from it it's your fault and most of the public thinks that way too. Frigging idiot psychos making all the rules and even more idiot psychos that go along with them. Get that fluoride out of our water! Make mandatory removal of all toxic chemicals/toxins from our water, air, food and environment and put an end to genetically modified foods. I don't want a list of your chemical poisons! Go home and eat, drink, breath and smoke them yourself! Many companies just need to be put out of business completely. Topping my list is Monsanto!

    I am glad to see this article... But, it wont make a dang bit of difference to these smoking addicts. They all have the outlook: it will either kill me or wont kill me...... BUT, what about the innocents around them? What about the second hand smoke? Its just as much the killer... Smokers aka Cig Junkies......

    It's unconstitutional to allow them to sell an addictive product to teens legally and not at least show how dangerous it is by their own admission.

    If milk producers can disclose the contents of their products, so can tobacco producers. Milk causes perhaps a dozen or so deaths each year, tobacco causes more than 400,000 deaths here in the U.S. each year, and twenty times that number across the world. They will have to make much larger packages or produce a "package insert" like pharmaceuticals if they list all of the 150+ chemicals found in a cigarette. I really will be interested to see a list of these poisons and substances.

    If they are going to sell their product to the population they should be required to report all the other stuff they put into the product that is not a natural part of the product. Food companies must so why not tobacco companies?

    Something is seriously wrong if in this day and age anyone needs to be told that cigarettes and chew is bad for you.

    Do you realize that most Americans are far more stupid than a resident in the rain forests of darkest South America? That is "seriously wrong", having a little knowledge and believing you grasp the realities around yourself.

    anyone who, within at least the last 20 - 25 years, begins smoking or using chew gets no sympathy from me if they get cancer.

    I don't know if it's constitutional or not but at this point everyone knows the dangers of smoking. Add them or not, I doubt it will make any difference to those who choose to smoke.

    And tobacco companies should be required to report those levels.

    That being said, let's have every other industry report the levels of their chemical fertilizers, hormones, chemicals, and other potentially hazardous materials in every item of food or drink. That should be fair as well.

    This is sort of stupid. Everyone knows that tobacco is a dangerous addictive habit and if your afraid of it Well don't smoke. Does the public have to be told ? What about fast food, alcohal, certain prescription drugs etc, etc, etc. I guess the next thing the government will do is put warning lables on the bumpers of automobiles. If you stand in the path of a car you could be killed. Just read fast before you get your dumb a$$ ran over.

    That is probably a good idea. In recent years young people everywhere walk out in front of cars all the time, just daring someone to run over them. It's part of their juvenile attitudes of "me", "it's all about me and my rights and privileges".

    Reporting these does not seem to be unconstitutional, it would fall under regulating commerce I think.

    What I do not understand is spending billions on regulating, ads telling us how bad cigs are, and farm subsidies to the growers - if they are killers, why are they legal??

    For an answer to your question - Look to the Prohibition era or the "War on Drugs" as an example. While it would eliminate the costs of regulation, PSA's and the like, new costs would not only replace the old but would most likely surpass them. We would have to jail people who broke the new laws, spend more money to enforce the laws, spend money cracking down on tobacco dealers, spend money restricting the flow of tobacco into our borders, spend money cracking down on tobacco growers and cigarette makers... Besides, people would find ways to get tobacco anyway. They always do.

    They hide things just to make money.... So why make tobbacco companies do it? There should be a watchdog managed by central government but there again government makes so much money, more that the tobbacco companies themselves will they be honest? doubt it.

    be wise, be smart think with your heart.

    love peace and light to all
