Tar and feathers

A one of a kind law suit has been filed in Finland and the outcome of it will be interesting. Five seriously ill Finns are suing the two tobacco giants Philip Morris and BAT for misleading consumers over so-called light cigarettes. They feel that the tobacco companies lied and didn't acknowledge the potential health hazards of these cigarettes. According to the Cancer Society in Finland, even health experts recommended the light cigarettes to the Finnish smokers in the 1970's.
