In 2006, tobacco companies were found guilty of breaking civil racketeering laws, lying to the public about the dangers of smoking and marketing to children. After 11 years of litigation, the companies are now forced to take action and admit their guilt in national media and on cigarette packaging.

For the first time since the 1960’s tobacco companies will be airing television ads in November – to admit to the American public that they lied, deceived and failed to disclose the health hazards of cigarettes and the addictiveness of nicotine.
