Why can't anyone figure out that Phillip Morris bought there way to get FDA involved and pay off Senators and Congress. And then Obama signs it into law. Come on. They all should be put in Jail.

Why do one hundred dollar bills need color and graphics to stop counterfeiters? Wouldn't it be super if cigarettes and one hundred dollar bills had no color or graphics so we could all make as many counterfeits as we want? Is all that art on those things communicating something to the people holding the products? Is everything getting too complicated these days so hundred dollar bills look like foreign money?
