Follow Elizabeth Hagedorn: http://www.twitter.com/elizhagedorn See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: Philip Morris International, maker of Marlboro cigarettes, is fighting a new ruling in the U.K. that requires all cigarettes be sold in plain packaging. U.K. Parliament enacted the rule in March. It will require all cigarettes sold in the country be packed in plain boxes by 2016. PMI has sued, contending the rules would "unlawfully deprive" it of its trademarks. (Video via U.K. Parliament) PMI says its branding — those red ribbons, for example — is too important a part of the market economy to just legislate away. PMI's general counsel wrote, "We respec...
Increased cigarette sales coupled by reduced production costs helped British American Tobacco Kenya to grow its pre-tax profit in 2014 by 11 percent to 6 point 09 billion shillings. The taxman also benefitted from the cigarette manufacturer's increased sales as bat's excise duty and value added tax payments went up to 15 point 4 billion shillings. And as Bella Genga reports, bat shareholders are set to smile all the way to the bank to receive a new record dividend for the year.

Philip Morris International’s Shareholders met on May 6, 2015 to discuss how they can make more money by marketing their deadly products. So, we held a Flash mob to send our own message. PMI's latest campaign, “Don’t be a maybe, be Marlboro,” is NOT running in the US, which might be an indication of the type of response it would garner. Targeting youth is also illegal in the US, so its absence here can serve as an indication that PMI knows the campaign does in fact target youth. ASH joined the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids in urging governments to ban the Be Marlboro campaign in addition to all tobacco advertising. The WHO’s global tobacco treaty obligates all countries to ban all tobacco advertising, and the Be Marlboro campaign is a perfect example of why. Sign the petition at www.sto...

Aurora Cannabis might be merging with CanniMed Therapeutics soon. I think that this deal is fairly likely to go through but it's not a guarantee. There are definitely possible unforeseeable circumstances that might cause it to not go through. If this goes through then Aurora will be close to the size of Canopy Growth. They might be second in line to get an investment from one of the big alcohol or tobacco companies now. Should be an interesting next few months. https://www.newcannabisventures.com/aurora-cannabis-proposes-600-million-stock-based-cannimed-acquisition-at-24-per-share/ Amazon referal link if you want to buy anything and help me out a bit :) (all you have to do is click it before you buy something on Amazon) https://www.amazon.com//ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ll2&tag=in...
