European Commission inform us ( https://ec.europa.eu/info/identifying-conspiracy-theories )
that “conspiracy theories is the belief that certain events or situations are secretly
manipulated behind the scenes by powerful forces with negative intent”. European
Commission also report: “Real conspiracies large and small do exist. They are unearthed by
whistle-blowers and the media, using verifiable facts and evidence” giving the following
example: “Looking for a real conspiracy? In 2006, the U.S. District Court in Washington DC
(USA) ruled that major cigarette companies were guilty of conspiracy. For decades, they had
hidden evidence of health risks attached to smoking to promote higher sales. (LA Times, 2006)”.
Indeed, in 2006, the U.S. District Judge Gladys E. Kessler found the government had failed
to prove that the companies deliberately chose not to market less hazardous cigarettes, but
said there was “overwhelming evidence” to support most of the allegations. She said that
over the course of more than 50 years, the defendants “lied, misrepresented, and deceived
the American public. Moreover, “they suppressed research, they destroyed documents, they
manipulated the use of nicotine so as to increase and perpetuate addiction, they distorted
the truth about low-tar and light cigarettes so as to discourage smokers from quitting”.
The long history has been shown that no information about the addictive action of both legal
and illegal psychoactive substances is a real and big conspiracy. This information should be
presented clearly onto the product. For example, WHO, in the line with European action
plan, proposes that measures could be taken to introduce a series of warning or information
labels on all alcoholic beverage containers. However, all the health consequences of
psychoactive substances are the result of their addictive nature and the increased need for
consumption. The core information that should be labelling is that a product contains a
psychoactive substance which, among others, produces addiction.
