Philip Morris: Counterfeit Cigarette Lawsuit!

Philip Morris is often in the news for being on the wrong ewnd of lawsuits, but this time they're the ones suing, as they try to shut down widespread counterfeit cigarette salesm of their Marlboro brand.

The legal action focuses on te NY area, where counterfeiting allegedly runs rampant because of the huge taxes imposed on cigarettes there. As my fellow New Yorkers will know, one pack of cigarettes can cost over ten dollars here! Not that I care, since I value my own life and thus do not smoke. [/self-righteousness]
