“A Big Money Decision Against Big Tobacco” – A dying smoker says Philip Morris lied about the risks of cigarettes — and a jury awards him $3 billion. OK. News flash. In 1975 I hijacked all of my mom’s cigarettes and hid them. I was *six*. Did this man not figure out in the past 25 years the whole “smoking is bad” campaign? $3Billion??? What’s up with that? Man I am at a loss for words.
