If the government gets its way, all packs of cigarettes sold in the United States will feature large, graphic health warnings within a year or so. Last week, the Food and Drug Administration released 36 of those potential warnings. (You can see all of them here.) After a public review period, the FDA will settle on nine of the warnings to slap onto the fronts and backs of all cigarette packs.

I rounded up what I think to be the eight best and worst ads. Which ones do you think are the most and least effective? Vote in the polls below.
