my friend went to Canada and all i got was...

Disclaimer: Please do not lecture me on the dangers of smoking. This post is not meant to endorse anything. I am simply sharing what I think is humorous. If you can't read this and laugh along with me, you've got bigger problems than I do.

Groove spent the weekend in Canada, much like he does a couple of times a year. Fun was had by all, from what I've been told.

Along his trip, despite my persistence that he wasn't packing enough cigarettes to last the trip, he found himself without and was forced to track down a pack or two at one of the out of the way liquor stores that sell the product that shouldn't be in the public view of children. Don't believe me? Look at the proof.

My very own pack of smokes from Canada, complete with the following warning from Health Canada:

WARNING: Second-hand smoke contains carbon monoxide, ammonia, formaldehyde, benzo[a]pyrene and nitrosamines. These chemicals can harm your children.


And if that's not bad enough, check out the "You CAN quit smoking!" card inside the box.


And here I thought the US smoking laws were bad! Sheesh!!

Where is the French side? That's even more stupid.

Everything with French on it. Except there, it was Gov't mandated....

Eh...

Seriously? How did they get the tobacco companies to agree with that?!

Groove - it's not any more stupid if you can actually read it. :P

Sizzle - no idea? they must be getting their tobacco from other companies than we use in the US. it even tastes different.

Lol. I am guessing if someone is buying a pack, that card is going to be ignored ;)
