    I'm a little lost here... there are too many negatives in that sentence! So, who did what to who?

    The aggressive CA anti-smoking ad campaign was being sued by the tobacco companies to make them stop. The judge ruled for the ad campaign and against the tobacco companies. :)

    I think that it is amazing that cigarettes are still legal. We know that they kill people. I guess that getting rid of the cigarette would be too hard on the economy. :(

    Well, the tax revenue generated is huge. Cutting them out completely would have huge ramifications for the state budget.

    For now, the high taxes serve as a combination deterrent and economy booster.
