    Pictoral warnings should be implemented with immediate effect. Cigarettes do nothing but cause harm to smokers and others.

    Yes totally agree, the government should stick to standard globally accepted size (80%) of pictorial health warnings (PHW). Why can't SL stand on their decision of covering 80% of the cigarette packaging with PHW like Australia.
