Judge huffs at puffs

According to the Washington Post, “San Diego Superior Court Judge Ronald Prager ruled that R.J. Reynolds Co., the maker of Camel and Winston cigarettes, had acted improperly by running cigarette ads in magazines, such as Vibe, Spin and Rolling Stone, that have large teenage readerships. He fined the company $20 million.”

Not a kool time to be a magazine hooked on cig advertising, or for that matter, on any form of tobacco advertising.
