Are cigarette warning labels effective?

  • Cindy Cham, third-year rhetoric student

    I don’t think so because my dad sees them and still buys them.

  • Shameem Ahmed, computer analyst

    I think it is effective for those who aren’t smoking, but not for those who are (smoking).

  • Neil Saiin, sales associate, Wishes and Dreams

    I’d say not at all, I smoke and ignore the label. The label doesn’t seem enough in the present to faze me.

  • John Thompson, owner, The Book Man

    Well I don’t smoke, but they should be somewhat effective. It would be a good idea to vary them.

  • Karleigh Jephcote, fifth-year education student

    Yes I do, to an extent; however, they should provide alternate methods to show the effects of smoking.

  • Jesse Marantz, fourth-year physics student

    Well I think it is important that they are there, but if people want to smoke they will smoke, especially if they want to smoke multiple packs. So no, not very effective.
