New court-ordered ads from tobacco companies scheduled to air

November 21, 2017

Starting Sunday, November 26, the major U.S. tobacco companies will run court-required print and TV ads detailing the damaging health effects of smoking and secondhand smoke, and how the tobacco industry designed cigarettes to be more addictive.

The ads are a result of a 2006 federal court ruling which ordered the tobacco companies to issue "corrective statements" after finding that they had deceived the American public for decades about the health effects of smoking and their own efforts to market to children. The ads were delayed 11 years due to appeals by the tobacco industry.
