Graphic Cigarette Warnings Begin In South Korea This December

Despite an ongoing fight from tobacco companies, the South Korean government says starting in December, health-warning text & images must be included on the upper part of all cigarette packaging for sale in the ROK. Canada was the first country to make the change about 15 years ago, & Korea FM host Chance Dorland recently spoke about that first of its kind transition with Canadian Cancer Society Senior Policy Analyst Rob Cunningham & Physicians for a Smoke-Free Canada Executive Director Cynthia Callard to discuss how the new rules went into effect, the opposition they faced from tobacco companies, & how similar regulations could work here in South Korea.
