Sri Lanka passes law on graphical tobacco warnings
Feb 19, 2014 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's parliament has passed a law on pictorial health warnings on tobacco packs, after a British American Tobacco unit in the island went to court against an earlier health ministry regulation.

The state information office said parliament unanimously passed the law requiring pictorial health warnings to cover 80 percent of cigarette packs Wednesday.

Similar laws are in effect in several other countries.

The office of the Surgeon General of the United States, which in 1964 released the first landmark report against the deadly health risks of tobacco, said in January this year that modern cigarettes were even more dangerous.
