A few years back the Costa Rican government passed legislation that required all cigarette manufacturers to apply graphic warning labels to their products in an alleged attempt to curtail tobacco use among the tropical nation’s inhabitants.From Marlboro Mentolados to Derby Extra Suaves, not a single delicious cigarette was exempt. Gone were the days of cool looking characters that made smoking look fun, as smokers were forced to stand idly by while the Joe Camels and the Marlboro men of the world were quickly replaced by rotten teeth, aborted fetuses and blind blues artist.
Now a word from our Sponsor:
Although we are well aware that cigarettes will kill you (and everyone around you), we can’t help but feel that tobacco companies were unfairly targeted by the law. And since other things will kill you too, The Costa Rica Post has compiled a series of images that show what would happen if other companies were held to the same moral standards that the tobacco companies in this country are held to.
