Sorry for the gross image above, but the facts are facts. CIGARETTES WILL DO THIS TO YOUR TOES.

Anyway, here’s the big news: This past Wednesday, Australia became the first country in the world to introduce a law into Parliament to have standardized packaging for cigarettes. The proposed plain packaging will do away with brands and labels and instead place already-existing images of disease and warnings front and center on all packaging.

There’s opposition from big tobacco in Australia and the bill is expected to spark big debate in Parliament.

In the meantime, if you want to get familiar with the future of cigarette packaging, look at some hires images of the plain package design here.
