The 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act, however, gave the U.S. Food and Drug Administration more control over tobacco product labeling, and prominent visual images were going to be required on cigarette packages this year.

Before the new labeling rolled out, however, tobacco companies stalled the action in court, arguing such labels violated the right to free speech.

While the issue is being wrangled over legally, the researchers said they wanted to explore visual-warning use further, "to inform future warning-label policy development and implementation," they wrote in their study, which is scheduled for publication in the December issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
