■Class discussion: Should the government require warning labels on cigarettes? Is there a limit on how far warnings should go? Who should decide? Find examples where the government requires warnings or other information on products other than cigarettes. Do label requirements help protect consumers? Would graphic warnings about tobacco, alcohol or other drugs affect your choices? The U.S Supreme Court has ruled that companies have the same right to free speech as individual citizens. Do you agree? Does free speech allow companies to say anything they want and only what they want? Can you say anything you want?
