The FCC orders that cigarette ads on television, radio and in print must include a warning about the health risks of smoking

Whew these are lots of information and of course I'm not supposed to know these as  I was just brought up in the world then,  I was even born in the last days of 1967.  What amazed me most is the FCC's orders about including a warning about the health risks of smoking in which the message obviously wasn't properly understood by people as they continued with their vices leading to many cases of emphysema and lung cancer these days. Anyway I'm lucky though that milk wasn't so expensive those days :-)
