Shocking pictures on cigarette boxes

The Germans again. They want to be just like the folks over there in Singapur and put shocking pictures of dead people and black lungs and stuff on cigarette boxes in an effort to stop people from smoking.

Meaning that we now not only have to tolerate the smoke when we sit outside (smokers have been banned from indoors, thank goodness), but was also have to LOOK at the pictures, although we don't even smoke!

I prefer the French method - only sell cigarettes in a tobacco shop that has strict opening hours and ENFORCES the age limit. WiseKid was going crazy, they didn't even have smokes at the gas station :)
