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.

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