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 the United Kingdom, sales people for Philip Morris International have been caught offering potentially illegal incentives to smokers in bars to get them hooked on new heated tobacco products.
Undercover reporters were offered free tobacco, alcoholic cocktails and accessories, all of which Trading Standards said could be in breach of the Tobacco Advertising and Sales Act 2002.
