CIGARETTE COMPANIES AND GOVERNMENT LAWYERS REPRESENTING 40 STATES HAVE FINALLY REACHED AN AGREEMENT TO GIVE THE GOVERNMENT SIGNIFICANTLY MORE POWER TO REGULATE CIGARETTES.

THE DEAL ENABLES THE GOVERNMENT TO ESSENTIALLY CONTROL NICOTINE. IT SHARPLY RESTRICTS CIGARETTE ADS AND IT REQUIRES CIGARETTE MAKERS TO PRINT OMINOUS WARNINGS ON PACKS THAT SPELL OUT THE DANGER CONNECTED WITH SMOKING. THEN THERE'S THE MONEY INVOLVED, ANT IT IS LARGE. CIGARETTE COMPANIES ARE REQUIRED TO PAY 360-BILLION DOLLARS OVER THE NEXT 25 YEARS, 10-BILLION OF THAT RIGHT AWAY. ANOTHER LARGE CHUNK OF THE MONEY WILL PAY FOR HEALTH COVERAGE FOR UNINSURED CHILDREN AND PEOPLE WHO WANT TO QUIT SMOKING WILL GET FREE HELP TO KICK THE HABIT. WHAT DO THE TOBACCO COMPANIES GET: THE AGREEMENT SETTLES DOZENS OF LAWSUITS, INCLUDING 40 THAT THE STATES INVOLVED IN THE TALKS HAVE FILED AGAINST TOBACCO COMPANIES TO RECOVER MEDICAID COSTS CONNECTED WITH HEALTH PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH SMOKING. THE AGREEMENT ALSO SETTLES NEARLY 20 OTHER CLASS ACTION SUITS AGAINST CIGARETTE MAKERS AND PROHIBITS ANYONE FROM SUING THE COMPANIES FOR PAST WRONGDOING. BUT INDIVIDUALS CAN SUE FOR FUTURE MISDEEDS.
