U.S. court reinstates Alaska smoker case versus Altria

• Reuters
A U.S. appeals court on Monday reinstated an Alaska lawsuit against Altria Group Inc's Philip Morris USA by the survivor of a deceased smoker, saying her state product liability claims were not preempted by federal law and should have been tried in state court.

Altria and Philip Morris had argued the state claims could not go forward against them and Alaska Commercial Co, a local retailer, because a victory for plaintiffs Dolores Hunter and the estate of Benjamin G. Francis could result in a ban of cigarette sales in the state.

This is a sad situation. My Grandfather and his Father were Tobacco Farmers in Alabama and I'm 78 yrs old,

 I started smoking Bull Durham Tobacco and started cmoking store bought Cigarettes when I got in thew Military.

No one that I know of were ever Addicted to Tobacco (Nicotine) until the Idiots in the Government dictated to the Growers what kind of Chemicals to use. 

People are NOT Addicted on Nicotine, BUT, the Damned Chemicals that the Government demanded the Growers to USE.  SUE THE CORRUPT GOVERNMENT, It was Then that they plotted to Get RID of the Population and then Back the Insurance Companies to seel More Insurance.  Same thing Today, UNDER THE TABLE GRAFT in the Government.  IT'S TIME to CLEAN HOUSE, FROM THE TOP DOWN,  They have already been INDICTED,  JAIL THEM...........
