Don't take smoke money 

Are you a money hungry beasts flouting the law or is this just a ploy to get media attention rather than paying for it via advertising?

To the editor,

Geoffrey Allen's letter last week about duMaurier ads leads me to ask: Is your duMaurier ad in violation of the Tobacco Products Control Act? The research I did implies that the Supreme Court affirmed the legality of TPCA in 1995, and it still applies today. So does the TPCA outlaw these ads? Are you breaking the law? Do you think the TPCA infringes some right of yours or duMaurier's to free speech? Are you a money hungry beast flouting the law while trying to pay the bills? Is this a ploy to get media attention rather than paying for it via advertising?
