How Tobacco companies violate laws

Tobacco companies aggressively block, weaken, and undermine policies designed to protect public health and reduce tobacco use, and at times they have been found to work outside of countries’ laws. In multiple instances tobacco companies have been found to have violated the law.

In Ethiopia, British American Tabacco allegedly had marketing collateral appear around poor areas of Addis Ababa, easily viewable by all pedestrians (including children). The marketing campaign was approved by the Ethiopian gov’t (despite being against the law).
